Doris Day releasing a new album after 20 years
August 16, 2011
The 87-year-old screen legend, had her first hit record Sentimental Journey in 1945. She went on to become a Hollywood movie star in such film classics as Calamity Jane and The Man Who Knew Too Much and has won both an Oscar and a Grammy.
Now Day, who has avoided the limelight in recent years preferring to focus on animal rights campaigning, will release the album My Heart next month, using recordings that have been locked away for years produced by her son only Terry Melcher, before his death in 2004. “It was brought to my attention that the recordings were in storage and Sony was interested in releasing them,” she explains.
“So I listened to them and at first had some misgivings but after they were re-mastered I liked them and I hope my fans will too.”
The new album will include the track Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries and “My Buddy”, which Day first sang in the 1951 film I’ll See you in My Dreams.
