MUSIC NEWS - LOU REED has masterminded the video for Susan Boyle's version of 'Perfect Day' just months after stopping her from covering his 1972 classic. Reed initially refused to permit Boyle to cover the tune on an episode of TV's America's Got Talent this season, but later decided to let her include the track on her recent album, The Gift .
Reed requested the OK to be in involved in the production of her new video, which was shot on the banks of Loch Lomond, according to the UK's Sunday Mail newspaper. "I wanted to create a beautiful and intimate piece shot in Susan's native Scotland and she quickly agreed," Reed told the paper.
Ms Boyle added: "I loved that Lou understood how much it meant to me to film in Scotland. I didn't mind how much it rained or blew a gale - I enjoyed every minute."
