Amy Winehouse’s Back To Black album explored in Zane Lowe Radio 1 Special [Audio]


Amy Winehouse‘s Back To Black album went under the spotlight this week on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show. Produced by Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, the jazz-influenced singer’s five-time Grammy Award winning second album was released in 2006 following her Mercury Prize nominated debut, Frank (2003). Both producers speak with Zane about working with the late icon, whilst a host of collaborators and musical admirers [including Gary Barlow, Lady Gaga, Frank Ocean and Emeli Sande] chime in with tributes and reflections of Amy’s legacy, along with past excerpts of Winehouse herself talking about her inspirations in the one-hour special – listen back to the show below.

Known as much for her personal but often public struggle with addition and substance abuse as for her chart-topping music, Amy was found dead aged 27 at her flat in July as a result of accidental alcohol poisoning.

A posthumous album of unreleased songs, alternative versions, old demos and new material intended for her third album, Lioness: Hidden Treaures will be released on December 5, with £1 from every sale going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
