Audio: Stream Amy Winehouse’s “Our Day Will Come”

November 3, 2011

Words by Emily Shapiro

Before Amy Winehouseโ€™s passing, she spent a bunch of time kicking it in St. Lucia, relaxing and recording with her long-time producer and friend Salaam Remi. Remi, a native of Barbados, worked with Winehouse throughout her career on some of her most famous tracks and was by her side in her last moments of music-making. Some of these recordings are set to be released on Amyโ€™s final album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, on December 5th. The much anticipated work will include a variety of styles and collaborations including โ€œLike Smoke,โ€ (stream below) with Nas.ย  Read more about all the new tracks here.

Amy definitely honors the culture of the Caribbean, through โ€œOur Day Will Come,โ€ an easy reggae version of a tune originally recorded by R&B group Ruby & the Romantics in 1963. The Remi-produced track, which has all the components of a great reggae song, is made more intriguing by the contrast between the upbeat basslines and the sad sultryness her voice was known for. Give it a listen below and be sure to check out the whole album when it is released.
