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 Temper Trap who have tackled Love Is A Losing Game.
Dougy Mandagi: "Amy had one of the most unique voices of our generation - if I didn't know she was a white English girl, I would've thought she was a black woman from a different era. Love Is A Losing Game is a pretty sad song but it's so true as well - it was a challenge to do it differently but I hope our version still captures the inflection in the lyrics. When Amy sings about pain, you feel that pain. There are a lot of singers out there who can do vocal acrobatics but very few can convince you of their story. Amy did that."
