That album is slated to release on September 20, while the single and music video will be available on iTunes on Amy’s Birthday, September 14, 2011. All proceeds will go towards the Amy Winehouse Foundation which advocates young people who suffer from alcohol and substance abuse issues. Rest in peace Amy.
