Amy Winehouse to record a Christmas/Hanukkah album

Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson are teaming up again to record a festive album of Christmas and Hanukkah songs.

Tracks already mooted for the project include "Kosher Kisses" and "Alone Under The Mistletoe".

Ronson explained that Winehouse and himself, who both have Jewish roots, wanted to give Jews something better to listen to around Christmas time.

The record is likely to be ready for next Christmas, as Ronson and Winehouse are planning to enter the studio sometime this year, once the singer has written enough songs for the project, which will consist of half Christmas songs and half Jewish tracks.
