Amy Winehouse follows yellow brick road for new album
Troubled singer Amy Winehouse has revealed the inspiration behind her upcoming album - the Wizard of Oz.
Winehouse's follow-up to her Grammy award-winning album Back to Black will reportedly include samples of the original tracks from the 1939 Judy Garland film.
Along with the title theme song, well-known tracks from the musical include Over the Rainbow, composed by Harold Arlen.
Winehouse's work on her third album has been delayed by her ongoing battle with drugs.
She was due to work on the theme tune for the new James Bond film with DJ Mark Ronson but had to halt work due to health problems.
The commission was given to the American singer Alicia Keys and Jack White, frontman of The White Stripes instead.
Winehouse's 2006 album was influenced by 1960s soul music while Frank, her debut album, had a jazz feel. It was nominated for two Brits and the Mercury Music Prize, and won her an Ivor Novello songwriting award.
