An unreleased demo by a 17-year-old Amy Winehouse called “My Own Way” has surfaced.

NPR Music reports:

In 2015, four years after singer Amy Winehouse’s death, Universal Music U.K. CEO David Joseph announced that he’d destroyed all of her demo recordings in an attempt to prevent anyone from releasing them posthumously. Despite that, composer Gil Cang, who wrote songs for Winehouse early in her career, has posted a Winehouse track called “My Own Way” to YouTube.

Cang, who co-wrote the scratch track with James McMillan, announced on the YouTube post that the song is one “we love and want the world to be able to hear.” He says he recently rediscovered the recording, made when Winehouse was in her late teens, and decided to share it.
