Amy Winehouse Is Alone in a Crowd in New ‘Tears Dry On Their Own’ Video Featuring Unseen Footage

Amy Winehouse is in her classic mode in a new video for her jazz-pop lament “Tears Dry On Their Own.” The track from the late singer’s breakthrough 2006 sophomore album, Back to Black, has gotten a refresh thanks to a new lyric video featuring previously unseen B-roll and footage from the recording of the original video, which was directed by David LaChapelle (Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez).


The visual dropped on Wednesday (April 10), just days before the anticipated Winehouse biopic, Back to Black, opens in the U.K. The “Tears” video folds in original footage along with never-before-seen b-roll and outtakes from LaChapelle’s original clip filmed in Los Angeles in 2007.

The majority of the video features Winehouse in her signature short cocktail dress, cat-eye makeup and towering beehive hairdo walking through the streets, singing to herself on a hotel bed and fussing with her coif as she croons, “He walks away/ The sun goes down/ He takes the day, but I’m grown/ And in your way/ In this blue shade/ My tears dry on their own.”

In the lead-up to the biopic’s release — it opens in the U.S. on May 17 — an official trailer dropped in February, revealing the film’s all-star cast, including star Marisa Abela, as well as Eddie Marsan (Ray Donovan) as proud father Mitch Winehouse and Jack O’Connell (Godless) as troubled husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

In January, a new version of the singer’s “In My Bed” video was released with previously unseen footage to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her 2004 debut album, Frank. Winehouse died in 2011 at 27 of an accidental alcohol overdose after years of substance use struggles.
