With Amy Winehouse’s near-half-decade-old Grammy-winning sophomore LP Back To Black at #1 on both iTunes and Amazon following her death, thoughts turn, naturally, to the London singer’s new material that she’s been recording for the past two years. Daily Telegraph sources say the songs were at demo stage but there was “a lot of material” available.
Winehouse, who was 27 when she was found dead in her London apartment, will now have the rights to her material reverted to her parents Mitch and Janis, according to the UK newspaper. So far there is no release date for a posthumous album.
Last year, Michael Jackson’s collection of unreleased material Michael arrived in December, a year-and-a-half after the singer passed away.
Over the past two years the “Rehab” songstress is said to have hit the studio with her former collaborators Salaam Remi (who produced “Tears Dry On Their Own”) and Mark Ronson (“Valerie,” “You Know I’m No Good”).
Meanwhile, MTV News quotes Amy Winehouse’s stateside publicist as saying, “There is no information on any new music at this time.”
In the end, not too many concrete details. But it seems highly unlikely that Amy’s label wouldn’t release her newly-recorded material in some form or other.
Guess the real question is simply, when?
