A previously-unheard demo recorded when Amy Winehouse was 17 has surfaced online.
The song, titled ‘My Own Way’, has been shared by London musician Gil Cang, who co-wrote the track with James McMillan and Maryanne Morgan.
Cang says Winehouse recorded the song in 2001 while trying to attract the attention of record labels and that it only took three takes.
“We’d been writing quite a lot of pop tunes, doing a lot of pop promos with various artists who would come in, many of various, dubious talent. It was at a particularly dire time in the pop world – lots of terrible, terrible girl bands and boy bands and we had to make something for them,” Cang explains to the Camden New Journal.
