Amy Winehouse producer Salaam Remi discusses the recording of the late singer's "Tears Dry On Their Own" in a new clip from the upcoming documentary, Back To Black. The film goes behind the scenes on Winehouse's 2006 album, detailing the recording process and the impact it made around the world.
In the clip above, which features rare outtakes of Winehouse in the studio, Remi explains how he used “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” as a reference for "Tears..." Speaking in a new interview, the producer says: “As I listened to the instrumental I heard similarities in the movement of [Amy’s] song." He asked Winehouse to record over the original, though she wasn't happy. "She was pissed at me,” says Remi. “[She said,] ‘You know what? I’m going to try it because it’s you, but for real this is not going to happen. This is way too fast. How can I sing it that fast?'”
Back To Black will be available on DVD and on demand from November 2.
