Mark Ronson Initially Refused To Work On Amy LP
At first, he turned down the chance to produce Lioness: Hidden Treasures...
Ronson, who worked with the tragic star on her hit 2006 LP Back To Black, went on to reveal that he only changed his mind after hearing Winehouse's version of Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, and realised it was "special."
Speaking to BBC Breakfast, the Bang Bang hitmaker revealed that Lioness is "an insight into the songs she loved", continuing: "She really was an encyclopaedia of these old jazz and soul standards. She could pick up a guitar and play any of them."
"I didn't know if they necessarily needed what I had to give and it was a bit soon for me to spend that time listening to her voice on a loop, like you do when you're in a studio working on a record.
He added: "Then I heard this vocal she'd recorded for 'Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow' and I thought, 'This is really special and I want to be a part of this and make one more piece of something magical with Amy'."
Lioness: Hidden Treasures topped the official album chart last Sunday (11th December), with Winehouse's dad Mitch stating: "Just been told. Amy at Number One... My heart is sad but bursting with pride."
