A few months ago, we did a “Full Albums” post with covers of every song off Amy Winehouse’s breakthrough album Back to Black. For the title track, we picked a very slow and strange version by Banjo or Freakout. Now there’s a new cover that gives it a run for its money – equally slow but much more melodic.

It comes from Quebec duo Ghostly Kisses. Singer Margaux Sauvé gives a haunting reading of the vocals over stately keyboards. She wrings every ounce of pain from the lyrics, highlighting Winehouse’s skill as a songwriter. Watch it below.
