LOS ANGELES (AP) — Amy Winehouse is making music again.
Quincy Jones says the five-time Grammy winner’s first new track in years will appear on his forthcoming album, “Q: Soul Bossa Nostra.”
Winehouse has been known more for her personal problems than her music in recent years, and hasn’t issued any new tunes since her critically acclaimed 2006 breakthrough CD, “Back to Black.”
The 26-year-old British songstress reunited with producer Mark Ronson to record the 1963 classic “It’s My Party” for the album celebrating Jones’ past hits. The 77-year-old music mogul produced the original Lesley Gore track.
“Q: Soul Bossa Nostra” also features Usher, Ludacris, Akon, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, T-Pain and LL Cool J, among others. The album is set for release in November.
