London: Singer Patti Smith has penned down a song as a tribute to late singer Amy Winehouse in her latest album. “We wrote a very nice little song for Amy Winehouse and I think a beautiful song for Maria Schneider, the actress who was a friend of mine in the 1970s. They just happened, like gifts,” a website quoted her as saying.

“The little song for Amy just blossomed in the studio. We were at (New York recording studio) Electric Lady doing a whole other song and I wrote Amy a little poem when she died and my bass player, Tony Shanahan, wrote a piece of music and the two matched perfectly,” she added.
