It was Asif Kapadia's Amy Winehouse documentary, Amy
, which inspired writing The Corrs' sixth album. The title, 'White Light,' is from a quote from Tony Bennett in the film about the singer. Andrea Corr explained to The Sun
: "I went to see the Amy
documentary which obviously had a big effect. It struck me when Tony Bennett said: 'You've got to live long enough to learn how to live.'
I walked out of the movie thinking about the 27 Club
and the amount of artists that die at that age. 'White Light' is about being brave enough to get over that difficult time because everything passes.
I remember when we were in our 20s how immersed we were in certain issues but you realise it's a moment that will pass and you've just got to deal with it. But Amy didn't want to be famous. She just wanted to be a jazz singer."
