Patti Smith has written a song about the late Amy Winehouse, she has revealed.
The punk icon based the track on a poem she had written about the London-based soul singer after her unexpected and tragic death at the age of 27, last July.
"We wrote a very nice little song for Amy Winehouse... The little song for Amy just blossomed in the studio," she told Uncut.
"We were at Electric Lady [studio] doing a whole other song and I wrote Amy a little poem when she died and my bass player, Tony Shanahan, wrote a piece of music and the two matched perfectly."
Patti - who is set to adapt her best-selling book Just Kids for the big screen - insisted that the song will be featured on her upcoming new album.
