Picture 13Almost a year after her death, a new track from singer Amy Winehouse has just been released.

The track is called “Cherry Wine” and comes as a collaboration with rapper Nas. It reportedly first premiered on BBC’s Radio 1 Tuesday.

“Where is he? The man who was just like me, I heard he was hiding somewhere I can’t see, where is he?” sings Amy. “And I’m alone, and I realize that when I get home, I wanna go through my red and my cherry.”

Nas comes in after Amy’s piece, “I want someone who like the champagne I like,” he sings. “Someone to talk me off the bridge any day or night, she teach me how to live, she ain’t afraid of life, not easily impressed with the rich and famous life.”

The song was produced by Salaam Remi, according to Huffington Post, and will be featured on “Life Is Good,” Nas’ tenth studio album. The new album is set to be released later this month.

“Cherry Wine” won’t be the first collaboration released by the two. Winehouse and Nas have collaborated before. The duo collaborated on the song “Like Smoke.” According to reports, their first collaboration was featured on Winehouse’s album “Lioness: Hidden Treasures” which was released in 2011 following her death.

Winehouse died in July 2011. She was found dead in her London home and just 27 years old at the time of her death. As we’ve previously reported, the singer has long suffered from problems with drugs and alcohol and died shortly after a stint in rehab.

Many wondered if there was foul play involved in her death. An initial autopsy came back inconclusive and no drugs were found in her system at the time of death. British coroner Suzanne Greenway later revealed that the late singer suffered a “death by misadventure” and said her death was an “unintended consequence” of accidental alcohol poisoning.”
