Doris Day, the legendary American actress and singer, is set to release her new album 'My Heart' next month - 17 years since her last record. The entertainer, now 87-years-old, will release the re-mastered recordings featuring new material and cover songs on 5th September 2011.
Born in Ohio in 1924, the singer had her first hit record 'Sentimental Journey' in 1945. She rose to become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood and received an Academy Award nomination for her performance in 'Pillow Talk'. Speaking to the UK's Yorkshire Post about her new record, Doris said, "It was brought to my attention that the recordings were in storage and Sony was interested in releasing them. So I listened to them and at first had some misgivings, but after they were re-mastered, I liked them and hoped my fans would too". The singer has spent her later life working on animal rights projects and admits she doesn't listen to any contemporary artists - except for one Canadian crooner, saying, "I think Michael Buble is marvellous but perhaps that's because he sings in the style I'm so familiar with".
Doris Day's upcoming album features the track 'Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries', which was produced by her son Terry who died in 2004.
