Amy Winehouse’s exclusive cover of Sam Cooke‘s ‘Cupid’, recorded to support Artists Project Earth (APE), is set to become one of last non-X-Factor related hits of the year.

The track, recorded earlier this year for the ‘Rhythms Del Mundo Classics’ compilation, hopes to raise funds and drive awareness for the charity ahead of the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, December 7-18, where APE will be voicing the concerns of the world’s leading musician’s on the issue.

Despite ‘Rhythms Del Mundo Classics’ being released in July, ‘Cupid’ has received huge radio support recently. The compilation also features covers by Rodrigo Y Gabriela and Cat Power.
