Amy Winehouse records song with Babyshambles

Pete Doherty's men speak after 'ska' track sessions

Babyshambles have collaborated with Amy Winehouse on a new track.

Pete Doherty and his band recorded with the singer in Wiltshire, close to where the former Libertine underwent his recent rehab.

Speaking to NME.COM, Babyshambles‘ guitarist Mik Whitnall explained the band had been incredibly impressed with Winehouse‘s work.

“She plays better than James Brown playing acoustic guitar,” he said. “She thinks she’s shit but she’s not. I’ve never met a girl who plays like that, let alone a man.”

Whitnall added that they had finished a song in the session.

“It’s a ska type track. Amy’s playing guitar on it and singing as well,” he said. “I’m assuming that the pair have been jamming in Wiltshire where Amy‘s been staying with him along with his new fiancé from what I could gather.”

The duo had previously thought about covering a Billie Holiday song before deciding to write together late last year.
