Fans of the late Amy Winehouse will be pleased to know new music is expected from the ‘Back To Black’ singer as early as September. Legendary jazz/standard singer Tony Bennett (via Columbia Records) will be releasing the pair’s duet ‘Body And Soul’ next month with all proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation (a children’s charity setup by Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse). The singer’s father is quoted as saying:
“The fact that Amy’s voice is sounding as amazing and beautiful as ever and she is singing with the great Tony Bennett seems the most fitting tribute of all at this very difficult time.”
Said to be one of the late singer’s idols, Amy joins a list of other high profile divas set to guest on the album. Due September 20, Bennett’s ‘Duets II’ will feature ‘Body and Soul’ as well as collaborations with Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, and Queen Latifah.
