There's at least one person not totally excited about the prospect of Beyonce covering Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" for Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby": Winehouse's father, Mitch.
Speaking to The Daily Mail, Winehouse said that no one on Team "Gatsby" asked his permission for the cover, which he says "doesn't bring anything" to his daughter's original. Beyonce partnered with Andre 3000 for the song, which appears on the "Great Gatsby" soundtrack. Beyonce's husband, Jay-Z, produced the companion album for the film; the soundtrack also includes new music from Florence + The Machine, The xx, Lana Del Rey and Jay-Z himself.
This isn't the first time Mitch Winehouse has spoken out about the cover. In early April, Winehouse said he hadn't even heard of Beyonce's cover.
Fans haven't gotten a full listen of Beyonce's "Back to Black" just yet, but the teases are already more downbeat than Winehouse's version. (Winehouse's version, in turn, sounded like something pushed through Phil Spector's Wall of Sound.)
