A snippet of “Body & Soul,” Amy Winehouse’s duet with her idol Tony Bennett, has emerged. Labelled as her “final recording,” the melodious jazz tune was completed in March at London’s Abbey Road Studios for Bennett’s 85th birthday album Duets II, due September 20. Amy’s father, Mitch Winehose, stated:
“Amy was so excited to be working with Tony Bennett and really looking forward to her fans hearing this new recording. The fact that Amy’s voice is sounding as amazing and beautiful as ever and she is singing with the great Tony Bennett seems the most fitting tribute of all at this very difficult time.”
Proceeds from the track will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was started by Winehouse’s family to help youth charity. Duets II is available for pre-order here.
