Almost seven years after her tragic death, one of Amy Winehouse’s unreleased first-ever demos has surfaced. The song “My Own Way” was recorded when she was just seventeen years old in 2001, as a way to gain attention from studios.
Early Amy Winehouse producer and composer Gil Cang said, “I’ve had it knocking about for so long. I found it again last week and thought – I’ll put it out there so people could hear it.”
The song was produced with co-composer James McMillan. They said she did the song in three takes, and had originally captured their attention when she came in the studio “wearing a pair of jeans with ‘Sinatra Is God’” written in marker on the butt, according to the Camden New Journal.
