Valerie” was written and recorded in 2006 by English indie rock band, the Zutons. Winehouse covered the song for Mark Ronson (producer of most of Back to Black) on his 2007 album of Motown-rendered covers ‘Version’.

Mark Ronson:
“I have to admit I didn’t know the song all that well before we did it. At the time I’d just finished Amy’s album, and I’d almost finished mine and I really wanted her to do a song for me. I kept asking her if she knew any new songs. I explained that it was soul covers of guitar records. She only listens to things made before 1967, she didn’t know any indie songs. Then one day she came up and said ‘I like Valerie by the Zutons.’
