Stereophonics' Kelly Jones discusses Amy Winehouse tribute song 'Been Caught Cheating'
Stereophonics singer Kelly Jones has revealed that the track 'Been Caught Cheating', from their new album 'Graffiti On The Train', was originally intended for Amy Winehouse.

In an interview with the Daily Star, Jones said that he had penned the lyrics to the track with the late singer in mind and that she was eager for him to send her the song.

"I read an article about Amy's love life and the line 'Been caught cheating' came to me," he said. "I'd said hello to Amy at festivals and then I bumped into her at a record company party where she was with her fella Reg Travis. I've met Reg a couple of times since Amy died; he's a lovely guy."

He added: "We got talking about songwriting and Amy was up for me sending her this song, but I never got round to it. I thought it was too bluesy for Stereophonics to play but it's come out really raw and tough."

'Graffiti On The Train' will be the band's eighth studio album and was released through their own Stylus Records label earlier this week (March 4).

The full tracklisting for 'Graffiti On The Train' is:

'We Share The Same Sun'
'Graffiti On The Train'
'Indian Summer'
'Take Me'
'Catacomb'
'Roll The Dice'
'Violins And Tambourines'
'Been Caught Cheating'
'In A Moment'
'No One's Perfect'


Earlier this week, meanwhile, Amy Winehouse was named as one of the acts likely to be honoured by the London Borough of Camden when they launch a Walk Of Fame to the area later this year.
