Unseen Amy Winehouse Video Footage: Look + Listen

Concurrent with the 20th anniversary of Amy Winehouse‘s very first album Frank, on Tuesday (1.23) never-before-seen footage was released from the artist’s 2004, Paul Gore-directed video shoot for the song “In My Bed

Approximately 4:00 in length, the lyric video was curated in conjunction with the picture disc vinyl edition release of Frank, that contains the singles “Take the Box,” “Stronger than Me,” “F*** Me Pumps,” and “In My Bed.” 

The new video follows Winehouse as she walks through a hotel, sits on the check-in counter, and struts up a stairwell carrying a guitar case along with clapperboard takes, before she steps onto an abandoned stage and grabs the mic as a band assembles behind her.  The clip ends with the iconic singer walking through the hotel halls before finding her way into a room where, beneath the bed sheets, she sings “Yours is a familiar face/ But that don’t make your place safe/ In my bed, my bed, my bed.”

Winehouse, who died of substance abuse in 2011 at age 27, will be portrayed by Marisa Abela (Industry) in the upcoming biopic Back to Black. Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, the film is expected to premiere in April and will delve into Amy’s career, her husband Blake Fielder-Civil, and the paparazzi that engulfed her daily life.
