On what would have been her 28th birthday, Tony Bennett releases the video for his duet with the late Amy Winehouse. The soothing jazz tune, which will appear on Bennett’s star-studded album Duets II (Sept. 20), is said to be the singer’s last completed recording before she passed away in July and serves as a lasting tribute to her tremendous talent.
The clip, comprised of footage from their recording sessions in March at Abbey Road Studios in London, was filmed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Dion Beebe (Chicago).
“We had a beautiful time recording together in the studio and I knew that Amy was very happy with how she performed that day,” said Bennett. “I thought she was absolutely brilliant and this recording truly captures the essence of her unique artistry. She was a rare talent.”
Proceeds from the song and video, both available on iTunes, will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
