Tony Bennett to release Body and Soul single featuring Amy Winehouse
Tony Bennett has announced that he will be releasing his version of Body and Soul featuring the late Amy Winehouse as a charity single.
The legendary crooner, who recently turned 85, recorded the track with the soul singer earlier this year.
It will feature on his new album Tony Bennett: Duets ll, which also sees him jamming with Lady Gaga on the hit song the Lady is a Tramp.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Bennett said that Winehouse was "the best of all the young artists" that he has met over the last ten to 15 years.
He said: "She was really singing true jazz. It’s just too tragic. I wanted to talk to her and tell her that if she doesn’t stop she’s going to die. I wanted to talk her out of the drugs, but unfortunately I never had a chance to talk to her."
The proceeds of the single will go to the foundation that Winehouse's dad is setting up to help people suffering from addiction.
Bennett himself suffered a drug addiction in the 70s. He managed to, rather remarkably, quit his habit "cold turkey" and has said that in doing so, he saved his own life.
