Amy Winehouse

Put R&B, soul,  jazz, doo-wop, swing, funk and ska all together and you have the lovely combination that is Amy Winehouse.
Putting her hot mess antics aside, Amy Winehouse is one of the best vocalists of our time. Her powerful voice and soulful sound has given her an insane amount of popularity. Unfortunately, so has her substance abuse and crazy relationship with Blake Fielder-Civil. But all craziness aside, when I heard my first Amy Winehouse track (‘Do Me Good’ off Back to Black) my ears fell in love.
It’s been quite a while since Winehouse has released anything new and let down thousands of fans in 2007 when she postponed her US and Canadian tour due to health issues.

But, according to Metro UK, Winehouse is set to release a new album in January 2011. This album, if it’s actually released, will be her first album out since 2006 when she released her second album, Back to Black.
It’s been awhile but I am more than ready to hear more Winehouse. 
“It’s going to be very much the same as my second album, where there’s a lot of jukebox stuff and songs that are … just jukebox, really,” Winehouse told Metro UK.

If Winehouse actually pulls through and releases a new album like she says I have no doubt that millions of people across the globe will be excited and anxious to hear her new a;bum. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
In the meantime, bringing tracks off Frank and Back to Black back into rotation is a must.

 A classic by my favorite hot mess:
