In the vault

Twelve Amy Winehouse songs will never be heard – because the singer banned them from release before she died. Bosses at Island Records UK say they have enough material to fill a fourth Amy collection, to follow on from the upcoming release of her posthumous third album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures. However, Amy made label chiefs promise the songs would remain locked up in the vault.
Island's co-president Ted Cockle has confirmed they'll honour her request, but insists there's a classic single – called Procrastinate – among the discarded tunes.

He said: "There are a dozen unfinished or unreleased tracks she didn't want put out. Everyone who hears Procrastinate loves it."

Ted's co-president colleague Darcus Beese added: "If you ever hear Procrastinate, you have my permission to come into my offices here in Kensington and fire me."
