Report: Amy Winehouse Scraps Sessions, No New Material in ’08


Sorry Amy Winehouse fans, you’ll have to wait. According to U.K. rag The Sun (via, Winehouse has canceled studio sessions scheduled for the Bahamas, during which the coiffed songstress was set to begin recording the follow up to 2007’s smash hit Back to Black.

“Island wanted to get her away from it all and thought it would be great surroundings for her,” an unidentified source told the paper of the canceled sessions, originally slated to pair Winehouse with Saleem Remi, the producer behind her debut, Frank. And now it seems Winehouse is testing fans and label executives’ patience — especially considering her work with producer Mark Ronson on the new Bond theme song.

“The album was planned for late 2008,” the source said, “but her label is now privately admitting it’s unlikely to happen until 2009.”
