Amy's Third Album Demos Destroyed
Winehouse's label explains why the singer's remaining demos were scrapped.

Another beautiful, candid clip of Amy Winehouse from the documentary Amy has been released ahead of the film’s nationwide opening this Friday (July 10). The footage shows Winehouse laying down the vocals for “Back To Black” during a recording session with Mark Ronson in New York in March 2006, just a few months before she’d release the album of the same name.

The video provides some context about her second and final album’s title track, with Ronson saying Winehouse wrote the melody and lyrics in just three hours. Then the producer can be seen sitting at the controls while Amy delivers a powerful a cappella take.

“I just caught her at that magic moment,” Ronson reflects in a voiceover after the recording session plays out.
