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."

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.
