Susan Boyle’s New Single Is Lou Reed’s ‘Perfect Day’


Earlier this month, Susan Boyle was reportedly banned from performing "Perfect Day" on America's Got Talent by Mr. Reed himself, although it later turned out the song was just not cleared for the U.S. market in time. Either way, Boyle stays winning: It's now been announced her cover of "Perfect Day" will be the lead single off her upcoming second album, The Gift. She's also planning on covering Crowded House on The Gift, so maybe Neil Finn feels like picking a fight? [Guardian UK via ArtsBeat/NYT]
