Paul McCartney Interviews Doris Day About New CD
Paul McCartney is helping Doris Day promote her new album. He's interviewed the legendary singer and actress for Britain's "Telegraph." They discuss her project, "My Heart," which will be released in the U.S. next week, as well as their shared love of animals. Day's CD features covers of some vintage rock hits, including the Lovin' Spoonful's "Daydream" and Joe Cocker's "You Are So Beautiful." McCartney calls "My Heart" a "nice album with beautiful emotions." He asks if her upbringing in Cincinnati influenced her decision to include the song "Ohio," from the musical "Wonderful Town," on the album, and she admits it did.
Paul also praises her as a "pioneer" in the protection of animals in the film industry after hearing about her experience on the film "The Man Who Knew Too Much." McCartney asks if she really "demanded from Alfred Hitchcock" that the animals on the set receive better care. She replies that once she "spoke with Hitch about it" they "were treated beautifully." Day's "My Heart" is available now as an import. The North American edition will be released on September 13th.
