According to NPR Music , composer Gil Cang who co-wrote “My Own Way” with James McMillan and the late Amy Winehouse has released the never-before-heard demo on YouTube. The song was apparently recorded in Amy’s late teens.
In an interview with the Camden New Journal, a newspaper outside of London, Cang says he and McMillan “had been writing quite a lot of pop tunes, doing a lot of pop promos with various artists who would come in, many of various, dubious talent. It was at a particularly dire time in the pop world — lots of terrible, terrible girl bands and boy bands and we had to make something for them. Amy came in to see us, opened her mouth and just blew us all away.”
