A previously unseen Amy Winehouse concert highlights Amy Winehouse – Back to Black, an upcoming DVD/Blu-Ray documentary about the late singer’s acclaimed 2006 LP. The film, also available in digital format, is out November 2nd.
The recently unearthed live set, “An Intimate Evening in London,” documents a private show Winehouse hosted at Riverside Studios in London, England in February 2008 – on the night she won five Grammys, including Best Pop Vocal Album. The singer performed Back to Black tracks and several covers during the intimate show, which she arranged for family, friends and record company executives.
Amy Winehouse – Back to Black traces the creative process that birthed Back in Black, the soul vocalist’s second and final album. The doc includes previously unseen footage of Winehouse, in addition to newly filmed interviews with producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, and other musicians who collaborated with the singer, who died from alcohol poisoning at age 27 in July 2011.
The multi-platinum Back to Black, which followed 2003’s Frank, briefly became the highest-selling album of the 21st century in the U.K. The album featured five singles: “Rehab,” “You Know I’m No Good,” “Back to Black,” “Tears Dry on Their Own” and “Love Is a Losing Game.”
Director Asif Kapadia examined Winehouse’s personal life and substance abuse battles in Amy, his Oscar-winning 2015 documentary about the singer.
