Amy Winehouse mines yet another single from her 5 x platinum album ‘Back To Black’. Out on December 10th “Love Is A Losing Game” is of course Amy at her most poignant and apt considering her recent trials and tribulations and while she might be attracting more and more column inches for her lifestyle as opposed to her music lets not forget why she originally came to our attention.
‘Love Is A Losing Game’ is a fine single, Amy drips melancholy all over this song and convinces the listener that she’s got a heart that’s been blown to fragments showing an effortless touch of the deepest soulful blues. Of course the moot point is surely by now everyone on the planet owns a copy of the album. Still that doesn’t stop the powers that be releasing the obligatory deluxe edition and on November 5th Amy will be releasing the DVD version of the album entitled “I Told You I Was Trouble”. Amy also kicks off her UK this month with London dates at the Brixton Academy on December 16th and 17th providing she actually turns up.
