Jones wrote Stereophonics track for Amy Winehouse


The Stereophonics

The Stereophonics’ Kelly Jones has said that his band’s new track ‘Been Caught Cheating’, aka one tenth of their new LP ‘Graffiti On The Train’, was in part inspired by the late Amy Winehouse.

Quizzed by the Daily Star, Jones said he’d originally meant to give ‘Been Caught Cheating’ to Winehouse to release herself, but “never got round to it”.

He says: “I read an article about Amy’s love life and the line ‘Been Caught Cheating’ came to me. I’d said hello to Amy at festivals and then I bumped into her at a record company party where she was with her fella Reg Travis”.

And: “We got talking about songwriting and Amy was up for me sending her this song, but I never got round to it. I thought it was too bluesy for Stereophonics to play but it’s come out really raw and tough”.
