The first Amy Winehouse posthumous recording has surfaced, as well as the first piece of Tony Bennett’s Duets II album of standards has been found–that is, the one with Amy Winehouse on it, “Body and Soul.” It’s eerie, as most posthumous releases are; it’s impeccably sung, as almost every Winehouse release or performance was even amid tragedy, and it’s sincere (remember, Winehouse had a jazz background.) There isn’t even much reason to feel off about listening–according to the uploader, a radio interview with Bennett played the snippet, and once it is released in advance, all proceeds will go to Mitch Winehouse’s foundation. Earlier this month, Bennett told Rolling Stone:
She was really the best of all the young artists that I met in the current scene in the last 10 or 15 years. She was really singing true jazz. It’s just too tragic. I wanted to talk to her and tell her that if she doesn’t stop she’s going to die. I wanted to talk her out of the drugs, but unfortunately I never had a chance to talk to her.
