British singer and song writer Amy Winehouse was preparing for her third album before she passed away. The singer had kept in sore an album worth demos that were mapped out before she was found dead at her residence. But the fans will now never be able to hear what Amy had in store for everyone as her label has destroyed them saying it was an attempt to protect her legacy.
The decision might sound strange but might be fair as the industry should not capitalize on something that might guarantee chart success. Billboard informed that Amy’s demos will never surface as they do not exist anymore. The chairman and CEO of Universal Music UK, David Joseph talked about the decision to destroy Amy’s demos in the upcoming documentary ‘Amy’.
Joseph said, “It was a moral thing. Taking a stem or a vocal is not ¬something that would ever happen on my watch. It now can’t happen on anyone else’s.” This can be a blow for the fans as they knew that Amy was preparing for a third album.
However, hearing the tracks before they were fully finished might not have been right either. Michael Jackson’s album ‘Xscape’ consisted of Jackson’s demos and was polished by a group of producers without his final approval.
