The "New" Amy Winehouse Video Is Here - watch now!

Ever since Amy Winehouse went to the big rehab in the sky in July, it was inevitable that a number of posthumous releases would emerge, hoping to honor her memory and also cash in on it.  Well the first of those arrived yesterday, in the form of lead single 'Our Day Will Come' off the forthcoming 'Lioness: Hidden Treasures' album.

While it would be easy to see any release of Winehouse material as a blatant cash grab, this one at least has the distinction of being the first official one, and the fact that a portion of proceeds from each sale go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation certainly helps soften any criticism. 

In fact, it's hard to fault this release for much of anything - it's a pretty song sung by a starlet who was taken too soon.  So cash grab or not, thank god there's just a little bit more Amy left out there in the world.

Here is 'Our Day Will Come', featuring a collection of footage from Amy's past videos and shows.  As one commenter on the YouTube page said:  "It's just such a shame we know she'll never sing this live."
