Our new issue, Q313, which has just hit newsstands comes with an exclusive Amy Winehouse tribute CD to go alongside our extensive cover feature on the late singer.
Get the magazine now to get your hands on a copy of Back To... Back To Black, but in the meantime we're showcasing a different act each day who have covered a track from the album, today we hear from The Cribs who have tackled Back To Black.
Ryan Jarman: "Amy liked our band and used to come to our gigs, which I always found flattering as I was well aware of what a talent she was. We had mutual friends and would hang out. I've always seen this as a very dark song so we approached it from that angle as opposed to just doing a rough'n'ready, straight cover. We had to reel it in a little as it was in danger of becoming a little too doomy, but I wanted it to feel heavy. I always admired the way Amy lived her life as an artist, and that's my most enduring feeling about her. She was very pure."
