Doris Day makes chart history with her first UK ‘Top 10’ album ‘My Heart’
Published: September 11, 2011

According to the Official Charts Company, Doris Day has become the oldest recording artist to attain a UK ‘Top 10’ hit with an album featuring new material.

Ms. Day’s latest release ‘My Heart‘ made its debut on the official UK album chart at #9 – this is her highest recorded chart position of all her UK album releases since the chart began in 1958  (until today Doris Day’s highest charting album had been her 1979 compilation “20 Golden Greats” which peaked in the UK at #12).

‘My Heart’ was also the 2nd highest “new album” entry having fought off stiff competition from new releases by the American/Scottish musical theatre performer and star of BBC TV show “Torchwood” –  John Barrowman (“Tonight’s The Night, The Very Best Of“) and English soft rock legend – Chris Rea (“Santo Spirito Blues“).

The GRAMMY award winning singer’s big chart comeback is in part thanks to the overwhelming support offered by BBC Radio 2. The UK’s “most listened to radio station” kept Ms. Day’s lead singer for radio, ‘Heaven Tonight’, on their main playlist for the last few weeks which made her “the oldest star in history to be playlisted on BBC Radio 2”. The mass amount of airplay combined with the music-buying power of her loyal fan base has without a doubt helped Doris Day attain her various new chart accolades
