It has been 4 years since her last album, "Back to Black", was released and, unfortunately, Amy Winehouse has been more popular in the press lately due to her substance abuse issues than her music. Fortunately, she doesn't seem to have completely forgotten that she is, indeed, a singer and has collaborated with her long-time producer, Mark Ronson, on a song to be included in "Soul Bossa Nostra", a tribute album to the legendary Quincy Jones, who was more than happy with the final product.
"I am thrilled that she and Mark wanted to be a part of this album and I absolutely love what they did to make the song their own," Jones said in a statement. "Amy's talents as an artist are undisputable and I am astounded not only by her voice but by her tremendous knowledge of and respect for music and its history."
