Amy Winehouse’s fame whore dad Mitch is releasing a new album…it’s called Rush Of Love and its released in August and Mitch isn’t cashing in on his daughter’s success and…oh wait, according to the BBC, Mitch has stated that his talented newly cleaned up daughter should have a new album out by Christmas. Here’s what he has to say:
The follow-up is “a work in progress” and will “hopefully” be released in time for Christmas, her father said.
“I’ve heard some tracks. She takes a long time to grind out an album. She writes from her own experiences and most of the time they’re bittersweet experiences, and that’s the problem.
“I don’t want her to be full of angst and depression and heartache for her to write an album. It’s kind of a double-edged sword. I want her to produce an album, obviously.
“But then [not] with all the aggravation and heartache that goes with it. Her songs are really from the soul.”
Okay, so Mitch is notorious for blabbing on about his daughter to the media but I do hope he’s telling the truth when he says that Amy will have a new record out by Christmas. It’s been four years since Amy’s last critically acclaimed album Back To Black and I suddenly feel very old. It only seems like yesterday when Rehab first hit radio.
Still, Amy has left a void in the music industry which has only been partly filled by her imitators Duffy, Adele, Paloma Faith etc. so here’s hoping she stays clean and releases another masterpiece. Fingers crossed.
