Jarvis Cocker on Dory Previn

Dory Previn, the US singer and composer who collaborated with former husband Andre on two Oscar-nominated songs, has died in Massachusetts at the age of 86.

Born Dorothy Veronica Langan in 1925, she began as a lyricist before finding success as a solo artist in the 1970s.

Pulp frontman, Jarvis Cocker, chose Previn's Lady With the Braid, when he discussed his favourite tracks on Radio 4's Desert Island Discs in 2005.
