Amy Winehouses label desperate to make her album a huge hitDecember 10th, 2008 - 6:20 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 10 (ANI): Troubled popstar Amy Winehouses label Island Record is so desperate to make her latest album a hit that they have booked three studios at the same time.
The label has blown a whopping 150,000 pounds in hiring the studios at north, east and west London.
“Amy’’s next record is one of the most eagerly anticipated in pop music so the record label isn”t taking any chances, the Mirror quoted a source, as saying.
“Although there have been some recording sessions and she has played some songs to the head of the record company, there is still no sign of the album, the source added.
This could be the first time a label has block-booked different studios for the same artist.
“Sadly Amy doesn”t have a great track record in terms of reliability - she’’s been known to pull out of gigs. But she does like an all-night bender so by booking three different venues, at least the record label are assured - on the law of averages - that she”ll turn up in one of them, a source said.
“It’’s a pretty unprecedented move - rehearsal spaces packed with professional gear and sound equipment do not come cheap, costing up to 1,000 pounds a day, the source added. (ANI)
