New Winehouse tracks

The impending release of the new Amy Winehouse album Back To Black is getting ever nearer – 30th October, to be precise – and what better way to tease the hell out of you, than by sharing a few tracks! First off though, check out this video to Rehab, the first single off the new album. It is due out on 23rd October and was produced by Mark Ronson. Pretty strong first single, good job on the brass and the 60s soul style drums, the Ronson done good. I guess you want to get your grubby mitts on some mp3s now, so I shan’t delay any further.

So, first mp3, and I must first say thanks to homo eclectic for the heads up on these, is I’m No Good. This badboy starts with killer drums, then in comes some eerie strings and Amy’s (strong as ever) vocals. This has retro written all over it, but then from what I’ve heard so far (and read), the whole album has a 60s soul female group feel to it. Like Amy has kept the jazz connections, but gone for a retro pop stance on things. Anyway…

Next up is the title track to the album Back To Black. This one leaves the whole upbeat swing feel to one side, and is actually more of a tragic soul ballad, if there is such a thing. It’s at this point you realise that we are dealing with a totally different animal to Frank (Amy’s debut album). Where others have failed to evolve their previously distinctive sound, Amy seems to have managed it fully, solid stuff indeed…

I actually do have an mp3 of another track from the album Addicted, but the quality is poor and I don’t want to spoil you either! Just know that it’s quite an airy soul jazz number with a lighter outlook on things. Essentially this new material, or what I’ve heard of it, is pop music – the sort anyone could listen to without many complaints, it has this whole 60s female soul thing going on, and it’s quite charming. It will be interesting to hear how the whole album sounds, specially since Frank was such a great (and underrated) album. Still, not long to wait now.
