Now in his 83rd year, the very venerable Mr Burt Bacharach has struck a deal with HarperCollins for the publication of his life’s memoirs. Due in November, it will take its title from the 1963 classic, written by Bacharach and lyricist Hal David for Dionne Warwick, ‘Anyone Who Had A Heart’.

With biographer Robert Greenfield confirmed to assist with a story “told in Bacharach’s own words”, the book will chronicle the songwriter’s many achievements and accolades, as well as the demise of his and David’s professional partnership.
