London: Doris Day has made a record by becoming the oldest artist in history to get a UK top 10 album of original material.

According to the Official Charts Company, the 87-year-old singer’s new album ‘My Heart’ debuted at number nine, 62 years after the 87-year-old’s debut album was released in the US, reports the BBC.

‘My Heart’ is a selection of recordings produced by her son, Terry Melcher, before his death in 2004.

‘Playing In The Shadows’, the third album by British pop artist Example, entered the chart at number one.
