Reed made headlines in September when he allegedly wouldn't let Boyle cover his 1972 classic on 'America's Got Talent,' causing the Scottish singer to cancel her appearance on the show. In reality, the ban on the cover was simply due to a publishing rights mistake, and Reed had no problem with the cover. Once that was cleared up, Reed asked to direct the video for Boyle's orchestra-laden version of the song, which is on her new album 'The Gift.'
"I wanted to create a beautiful and intimate piece shot in Susan's native Scotland and she quickly agreed," Reed told the UK's Sunday Mail. "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."
Check out the video for 'Perfect Day' below. 'The Gift' is due out on Tuesday, Nov. 9.
