It’s been a while since we’ve heard new music from Amy Winehouse. Like, try four years. She claims to be hard at work on a follow-up to Back in Black, but we’ve seen this act before. Well, she’s back (for now at least). This new track suggests maybe she’s been in the studio after all! It’s Winehouse singing Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party” for the upcoming album Q: Soul Bossa Nostra, a tribute to producing legend Quincy Jones, who initially discovered Gore.

Needless to say, it’s very different from the stripped-down version we debuted Friday. Or, for that matter, the other stripped-down version we named Best Cover Song of 2009. With old partner-in-crime Mark Ronson in the producer’s seat, this song fits her old-school soul sound perfectly. She even drops a girl-power monologue in the middle. The woman hasn’t lost a step! Check it out.

Op een verzamelaar ter ere van producer Quincy Jones covert Winehouse It’s My Party van Lesley Gore. En het mag gezegd worden: dat klinkt verdomd lekker. Luister het nummer hier. […]

  2. […] it’s from the same Quincy Jones tribute album that generated this morning’s terrific Amy Winehouse tune. Consider this the counter-balance. It’s T-Pain and Robin Thicke attempting Michael Jackson’s […]
