Ronson Eyes Winehouse Duet

MARK RONSON is determined to re-team with AMY WINEHOUSE now she's back in the U.K. - after a planned collaboration fell through because of her extended stay in St. Lucia.
The superproducer was at the mixing deck for Winehouse's 2006 global smash Back to Black and the pop star returned the favour the following year (07) by singing Valerie for Ronson's covers album Version.
The pair was approached to compose a Bond theme for Quantum Of Solace last summer (08), but White Stripes rocker Jack White and Alicia Keys eventually landed the song.
Ronson was due to return to the studio earlier this year (09) with his muse to record a new version of Lesley Gore's You Don't Own Me for an upcoming album in honour of music industry legend Quincy Jones, but that was plan was dropped as Winehouse was battling her drink and drug addictions in the Caribbean.
The Rehab singer returned to her native London on Monday (13Jul09) after the eight-month break - and Ronson is eager to get her back in the studio.
He tells The London Paper, “I heard Amy was back in town, but I haven’t spoken to her yet. I’m working on a new record now, but I would love to work with Amy again.
“I would definitely like to hear what Amy’s been working on - she’s an amazing artist, so I would be interested in anything she does.”
