A brand new song by Amy Winehouse will debut today (September 14) on Ken Bruce’s Radio 2 show from 9.30am, on what would have been her 28th birthday.
Check back at NME.COM later today to read fans’ first impressions of the song ‘Body And Soul’, a duet with jazz singer Tony Bennett. The 1930 track has previously been recorded by Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.
Mitch Winehouse will also today launch the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which will help young people who are battling problems with alcohol and drugs.
Her father recently said that he believes his daughter died after a seizure, related to the drug Librium. Amy Winehouse was prescribed the tranquilizer to help with her withdrawal symptoms from alcohol.
There were no illegal drugs found in Amy‘s system in the autopsy which followed her death on July 23, however, Mitch Winehouse has said:
There were prescription drugs. She was taking Librium. It is a relaxant given to people who are detoxing. But it increases the chance of seizures. I think she had a seizure and this was the time when there was no one there to rescue her.
