It was a hit when released in the U.K. and now Doris Day's album, My Heart, will get a U.S. release on December 2.
A majority of the album was recorded in the mid-80's with production by Day's son, Terry Melcher. Melcher passed away in 2004. Day said in a press release "This music brings back so many memories, my dear friends who appeared on screen with me, all the wonderful animals, and of course, my darling son Terry whom I miss so much."


Sammy Hagar, currently wrapping up a short tour with Chickenfoot, told Rolling Stone that he doesn't expect he would be part of the Van Halen reunion for the Grammy nomination concert. "If Van Halen play, it will be Dave, Eddie, Alex, and Wolfie, his kid ' it wouldn't be Mike [Anthony] and I. First of all, we wouldn't be invited and second of all, if we were invited, we probably wouldn't do it. If Eddie is in the same condition he was the last time I saw him, I don't want to step onstage with him."


Look for a new solo album from Sonic Youth's Lee Renaldo on March 20. Between the Times & the Tides will be released on Matador Records.
Appearing on the record will be bandmate Steve Shelley, ex-members Jim O'Rourke and Bob Bert, John Medeski, Alan Licht and Wilco's Nels Cline.


Metallica will play the Black Album in its entirety at next summer's Download Festival.


Mike Mills has told Spin magazine that the R.E.M. split has been under consideration for three years. "There was no moment of clarity. We were discussing it on tour in 2008 and gradually the three of us came separately to the decision that breaking up might be the right thing to do at the time. We had an opportunity to do something that nobody else has really done - a band that has been together for a long time without any sort of bad things prompting the breakup. We started discussing it and came to realize that we all agreed."


Pete Townshend played a 20 minute acoustic set on Wednesday night for a small audience prior to the Classic Rock awards. The set was Acid Queen, Corrina Corrina, Drowned and I'm One. The event, which was followed by an hour-long Q&A, was to promote the director's cut of Quadrophenia.
