Finally, the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Amy Winehouse documentary Amy has arrived. Although the teaser only offers a brief 52-second glimpse at the film, her manager Nick Shymansky reveals a very surprising fact about the late singer and how she approached the songwriting process.
"We'd recorded quite a few demo recordings, and I started to talk about whether she ever considered writing," Nick said. "She said she's not sure about writing songs, but she's written a lot of poems. She knew full well she'd been writing songs, but they were very personal songs."
So let's get this straight - the undeniably talented Amy Winehouse didn't see herself as a songwriter?! Pardon us while we attempt to recover from breath-stealing astonishment. After all, we are speaking about a unique musical talent who penned her Grammy-winning album Back to Black, a collection of some of the deepest, rawest music to date.
In complete contrast to the singer's emotionally heavy lyrics, the teaser also shows off Amy's lighthearted side as she sings and jokes about the way she appears in the video. We're also treated to what appears to be a rough draft of "Cherry," a song from Amy's debut album Frank. Who else wants a behind-the-scenes glimpse at Amy while she recorded "Rehab," "Love Is a Losing Game," and "You Know I'm No Good"?
Maybe we'll get that and then some when Amy debuts in the U.S. this summer.
