Rejected: Amy Winehouse’s new songs turned down

Amy Winehouse has reportedly had her new songs rejected by her record label. A source said: “Amy was very productive during her stay in St. Lucia. She wrote a lot of songs, but the majority of them just aren’t hitting the mark. She seems to have ditched her trademark vintage soul sound and is now heavily influenced by reggae. Her bosses don’t think it’s a wise move to change her style so sharply and have told her that.”

The troubled star’s demo tracks for her upcoming third album have also been criticized for being “very dark” compared to her previous hits. The source explained: “The lyrics are very dark indeed. While she’s known for her conversational style and has been very successful with it, many of the tracks are near the knuckle. In the past, she’s written frequently about broken hearts and boyfriends, but this time round she’s delving into harrowing terrain.”

Bosses are determined to ensure Amy’s upcoming album matches the success of her 2006 LP ‘Back to Black’. The source added to Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “It is crucial Amy’s return is handled properly. If she puts out a record that is in any way half-baked, that could severely damage her long-term prospects, so everyone’s focus at the minute is getting it right, even if that means telling Amy some things she probably won’t want to hear.”
