Kanye West to Honor Amy Winehouse with Remix of ‘Back To Black’
West has reportedly already created the remix of the song. A source told Britain’s Daily Mirror, “It’s pretty emotive. It’s Kanye singing from the heart — with synthesizers.” West hopes to debut the new version of the song when he goes to London to perform for menswear company Moss Bros’ 160th anniversary celebration.
West performed Winehouse’s ‘Tears Dry On Their Own’ and ‘Back To Black’ during his set at Britain’s Big Chill Festival earlier this month. He said he met the singer — whom he called “beautiful” — a few years ago during Paris Fashion Week and was struck by her “amazing” presence. Winehouse died July 23 at the age of 27.
