Amy Winehouse's Final Album 'Back To Black' "Took A Lot Our Of Her", Dad Admits

13 July 2012, 15:33

Mitch Winehouse says he does not feel sad that his late daughter did not record a similar album before her death.

Amy Winehouse's father Mitch has admitted that her second and final studio album 'Back To Black' "took a lot out of her".

The late singer's dad said her would not have been upset if the star had never recorded a follow-up to the album that was equally as autobiographical.

Released in 2006, 'Back To Black' was critically acclaimed, and earned Amy multiple BRIT and Grammy Awards wins.

Mitch, who has just released a book about his daughter, told CNN: "I'm really not that displeased she didn't write any more albums. It might sound a ridiculous thing to say.

"The last album particularly took a lot out of her emotionally, every song was autobiographical, dragged from her soul, and I wouldn't want her to have made more albums like that because she would have been in constant turmoil."

He added: "I'm pleased that she didn't write more albums like that actually."

Amy Winehouse and her father Mitch pose together before her death:

Mitch's book, Amy, My Daughter, is available now.

The memoir arrives on the eve of the first anniversary of Amy's death last year. The singer passed away at the age of 27.
