Amy Winehouse to sing 'It's My Party' for Quincy Jones

Amy-Winehouse

Winehouse is said to have recorded a cover of Lesley Gore’s 1963 hit “It’s My Party” for Quincy Jones’ upcoming Q: Soul Bossa Nostra album. Her close collaborator Mark Ronson produced the track.

“It’s My Party” was one of Jones’ first major pop production credits before his legendary work with Michael Jackson. Its petulant, insistent tone fits perfectly with Winehouse’s strengths. And anyone who’s heard “Rehab” or one of their other five collaborations on 2006’s breakout Back to Black knows how arresting Winehouse can sound over a Ronson track.

Are you looking forward to hearing Winehouse’s “It’s My Party” when Q: Soul Bossa Nostra arrives in November? Think this song is a good fit for her? Hope this is the start of a full-scale return to music? Sound off in the comments.
