Two New Amy Winehouse Songs Premiere

Like Smoke & Our Day Will Come have got their first play on Radio 1...

Two previously unheard songs recorded by the late Amy Winehouse have premiered on BBC's Radio 1.

The tracks, entitled Our Day Will Come and Like Smoke, are taken from Winehouse's posthumous LP, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, which is due to be released on 5th December.

Like Smoke - a collaboration with rapper Nas - was originally recorded by Amy back in 2008, got it's premiere on BBC Radio 1Xtra, with DJ Twin B hailing Winehouse as "one of the most talented, original and best popular music artists to emerge in decades."

The songs sees Amy sing the lyrics: "I never wanted you to be my man/ I just need your company/ Don’t want to get dependent on/ Your time then lose the way you love me/ Like smoke, I hung around in the unbalanced."

Nas' verse on the track was recorded more recently and makes reference to Winehouse's death as he spits: "I be out in London, Camden/ Huntin’ for the answers/ Why did God take away the homie?/ I can’t stand it/ I’m a firm believer that we all meet up in eternity."

Chris Moyles played Our Day Will Come on the Radio 1 breakfast show this morning, and said: "I think if you're an Amy Winehouse fan, it's going to be a bit of a tear-jerker... When you hear her sing now, I think you hear it differently."

His co-host Dave Vitty also paid homage to the tragic 27-year old's haunting voice, saying Our Day Will Come could belong to a movie soundtrack.

Producers Salaam Remi and Markson Ronson have been working around the clock to put together Amy's album, with her family's approval.

Lioness: Hidden Treasures is set to feature a collection of demos from the Back To Black hitmaker's short career, with £1 from each record sold being awarded to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
