Was just thinking about how amazing and distinctive the background vocals are on "Me and Mr. Jones," "Addicted," and "Take the Box," more specifically how Amy could produce those high notes with perfect pitch, consistency, and length.

 

Although that's clearly her voice in the back of all her Frank and BTB songs, I just wanted to ask if anyone knows if any other artist contributed to the background vocals as well. It's common for producers and artists to pop a random other artist in a song for background stuff, but maybe that's not the case here.

 

If nothing else, I'd just love to share my love for those background vocals! They are underappreciated, in my view!

i dont think she had any artists in her backgrounds, but i think i heard her say Mutya Buena was In one, I got no idea though.

Amy was background in a Mutya song, but not sure if Mutya was in an Amy song

Jeni Fujita did backing vocals on 'In My Bed' & 'Amy Amy Amy / Outro', and on some versions of 'Stronger Than Me'. Also on the 'Amy Amy Amy / Outro' the song writers (Felix Howard, Matt Rowe and Stefan Skarbek) that she worked with at Mayfair Studios did backing vocals.

Who did the backing vocals in Back To Black the song ?
