According to Winehouse's back-up vocalist Zalon, the singer has been rehearsing new material with her band especially for these shows. In a YouTube clip posted in late December, Zalon and his brother Heshima, also a Winehouse back-up singer, reveal that Winehouse had already debuted some new tunes at a private concert in Moscow.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
