The beloved White Cliffs of Dover star's new release, which will feature newly-orchestrated versions of her most top songs, will put her in the record books as the first singer to have released a new album as a centenarian.

She became the oldest living artist to land a U.K. number one album eight years ago.

Alfie Boe and Aled Jones will feature on the album, Vera Lynn 100, which will be released in March (17).

Dame Vera will celebrate her birthday with a charity concert at the London Palladium on 18 March (17).
