Mark Ronson Says He Has No More Amy Winehouse Material To Release
In an interview with the BBC, producer Mark Ronson revealed that he doesn’t have any material left to release from his collaborations with Amy Winehouse. While at the Lovebox festival before the second anniversary of her death on July 23, 2011 at the age of 27. She died from accidental alcohol poisoning. Ronson said that he heard there was more material, but not from their work.
He said a future release should only happen depending on “how good” the material is. Winehouse worked with producer Salaam Remi on Frank and Back to Black and was working with him when she died in 2011.
He said: “I let the family decide all that. If it’s something she finished that Salaam and her worked on, that Salaam knows she’s happy with, then that’s cool. I know it’s very hard to maintain any kind of objectivity because so many people loved her. There’s so many people that would love to hear the table scraps of what she left because it was so good that it was better than most people’s albums.“
Ronson has been working with names like Bruno Mars, Paul McCartney and Giggs, along with DJ’ing at festivals. He’s also working on solo material.
He added: “I think that music does change so fast that you just have to make sure that what you do is really good so it withstands any trends. I think a great song or a great melody or a great rhythm transcends all of that and I think that’s what you have to gun for and then your stuff is timeless as opposed to trendy.“
