A report on the death of Amy Winehouse may have been sent to the wrong address, says Scotland Yard. The file, which outlines the circumstances of the singer's death in July, was sent to the singer's family, but they have not yet received the package.

"Police were ­informed that material relating to a forthcoming inquest may have been delivered to an incorrect address," says a spokesperson for Scotland Yard. "Inquiries are now underway to establish the full circumstances of this matter." A formal inquest into the singer's death will be held this week.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
