Amy Winehouse plotting 2010 album release, comeback
Will her appearance in British TV tomorrow be the start of something good?
Is Amy Winehouse plotting a comeback? According to NME and her British label Island, she's on her way.
The UK mag says Island records co-president Darcus Beese already has demos in his hands of potential tracks "hopefully" for a 2010 full-length release. It would be an album that would come on the heels of Winehouse's "Back to Black," released in 2006 overseas and in 2007 here in the U.S.
"I've heard a couple of song demos that absolutely floored me," Beese said. He also said that recording has come to the "Rehab" singer, predictably, in "fits and starts."
A test of Winhouse's commitment to return to performing may come as early as tomorrow (Oct. 10), when she is scheduled to sing back-up for her 13-year-old goddaughter Dionne Bromfield on British TV show "Strictly Come Dancing." Winehouse is releasing Bromfield's debut "Introducing Dionne Bromfield," a covers set, through her own Lioness imprint on Oct. 12.
Of course, time will tell if Winehouse can turn more than one singing performance back into a full-swing career. She has botched or canceled dozens of performances over the last three years, even after her Grammy win in 2008, due to drug and drinking problems. She has often kept herself in the tabloids for outlandish public behavior and fights with now-ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.
