'It's absolutely not true,' a spokesperson for Island/Universal Records responds to rumor claiming the company did not approve Amy Winehouse's new songs.
A spokesperson for Island/Universal Records has denied rumor suggesting that Amy Winehouse's new songs have been turned down. "It's absolutely not true," so the spokesperson claims in a brief statement.
Amy was rumored to have difficulty in taking her new materials to the next level because the tracks were not good enough for Island/Universal Records. "The lyrics are very dark indeed," a source previously told The Sun regarding the reason behind the alleged rejection.
Amy Winehouse reportedly spent most of her recent time in a studio located at St Lucia to record a follow-up to her 2006 studio album "Back to Black". There, she is said to have "ditched her trademark vintage soul sound and is now heavily influenced by reggae" in her new record.
