A few weeks ago, we posted Amy Winehouse’s reggae cover of “Our Love Will Come.” It came off her upcoming rarities comp Lioness: Hidden Treasures and now we have another taste. She covers the bossa nova standard “The Girl from Ipanema” in such imitable Winehouse style that you’ll mourn her all over again.
The song has been sung by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Ella Fitzgerald, so, yeah, a logical choice for Winehouse. It’s the first time she’s covered it, true, but not the first time she’s used it: she sampled the Astrud Gilberto disco version in her song “Cherry.” Listen to Winehouse sing “The Girl from Ipanema” below.
