Empire: Asif Kapadia’s “Amy”

Posted by

It’s been 4 years since legendary vocalist Amy Winehouse left us to join the 27 club, yet her spirit has lived on in countless artistic installations across the world from statues to wall murals, songs, books and likely anything else you can imagine.

The latest addition to Amy’s posthumous fan club comes in auteur director Asif Kapadia’s upcoming documentary, Amy. According to Empire, Amy “promises unheard music, as well as a comprehensive rummage through the archives from Kapadia and his research team to unearth unseen footage.”

“A once-in-a-generation talent and a pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, Amy wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems,” says the official synopsis, "The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most original and adored songs of the modern era."

Check out the trailer below, and look for the documentary hitting theaters in the UK on July 3, 2015. No information has been released about a US premiere.

Music supervision, or matching music to all the different mediums from films to ring tones, is one of the fastest-growing careers in the music industry, but finding the winning song for a national ad campaign or compiling a platinum movie soundtrack takes more than just good taste.
