Amy Winehouse Is Sort of a Musician Again!

I don’t know how you’re gonna get there, but Amy Winehouse, whose comeback is starting to sound as real as ever, will play a handful of shows in South America’s largest country (the one they call Brazil) in the new year. She’ll be joined by new-soul compatriots Janelle Monáe and Mayer Hawthorne. The gigs represent Winehouse’s first proper shows in two years.

Winehouse, who recently re-emerged with a cover of “It’s My Party”—her first recording since 2006—for a Quincy Jones tribute album, seems to be in better spirits (as opposed to be photographed drinking spirits), making headlines for her music instead of her misdeeds. Three of the Brazilian dates listed below are a part of Brazil’s Summer Soul Festival, and include Hawthorne. All four feature Monáe. A Russian show is reportedly also in the works. Now, can we get a new album and some U.S. shows, please?
