Only a few weeks before the anniversary of her 2011 death, Amy Winehouse has made the news again.
A documentary about the singer entitled “Amy” by British filmmaker Asif Kapadia is set to be released nationally on July 10th (though it will be released on July 3rd in New York and LA). But if you can’t wait that long, Billboard is giving away passes to advance screenings of the film at theaters across the country. If you live in Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Miami, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, or Washington D.C., click here to get passes. Supplies are limited and it’s first come, first served.

In other news, chairman and CEO of Universal Music U.K. David Joseph has destroyed Winehouse’s unreleased demos, according to Rolling Stone. At the time of her death, Winehouse had two studio albums: “Frank” and “Back to Black.” The demos were for a third, unfinished LP. Joseph told Billboard: “It was a moral thing. Taking a stem or a vocal is not something that would ever happen on my watch. It now can’t happen on anyone else’s.”
