In 2015, four years after singer Amy Winehouse‘s death, Universal Music U.K. CEO David Joseph announced that he’d destroyed all of her demo recordings in an attempt to prevent anyone from releasing them posthumously.
Despite that, composer Gil Cang, who wrote songs for Winehouse early in her career, posted a Winehouse track called ‘My Own Way’ to YouTube last week.
Cang, who co-wrote the scratch track with James McMillan, announced on the YouTube post that the song is one “we love and want the world to be able to hear.” He says he recently rediscovered the recording, made when Winehouse was in her late teens, and decided to share it.
AND we are so glad he did!
We are really diggin’ those 90s R&B and neo-soul-esque vibes of the track! Damn. This song only makes us wish she was still alive to make more music like this. Rest in peace, Amy. <3 This song will definitely be added to our playlist this week. Will it be added to yours?
