After speculation that a posthumous Amy Winehouse album would be released with any of the music she had been working on since her “Back to Black” album, her longtime collaborator Salaam Remi says that’s not true.
Remi had produced songs on Winehouse’s “Frank” and “Back to Black” album and was working with the singer before her death.
However, Remi says Winehouse did not complete a third album before her death. He tells radio station Power 105.1 that she had not been working on anything specifically for a third record. “We were working on it, it’s not a complete album. We had a lot of things going, there are recordings, but first things first, I think. We’re trying to focus on what’s at hand and what her family wants to do. So those reports of a release are false.”
I’m sure fans would love to hear some of that music as Remi adds that she was in a good place to make good music, “To put it all in a nutshell, Amy loved to sing, to write- that ability never left her. She was very good at channeling her emotions into lyrics, and then being able to sing them. She was in a place to go forward and make it happen.”
Sadly, we may not hear the music she had been working on since her last album dropped in 2008.
Remi remember the singer, “Amy had strong opinions on everything. She was very opinionated about what she liked. At the end, she was a real person. She had a huge heart.”
