Kanye West has recorded a new version of 'Back To Black' in tribute to Amy Winehouse, according to tabloid reports today (August 18).

The rapper, who has just released 'Watch The Throne', his collaboration album with Jay-Z, will reportedly debut the track in London next month, according to the Daily Mirror.

A source told the paper that the rapper had put his own spin on the title track from the singer's hugely successful second album and that he has added synthesizers.

The source said:

It's pretty emotive. It's Kanye singing from the heart – with synthesizers.



Kanye West will embark on a joint US tour with Jay-Z to promote 'Watch The Throne' in the late autumn and is also continuing work on his sixth studio album.

The rapper joins Green Day in announcing this week that they have recorded a song in tribute to Winehouse after the pop punkers debuted their new track 'Amy' online earlier this week.
