Amy Macdonald reveals she penned track for Susan Boyle
Amy Macdonald has revealed that she wrote a song for Susan Boyle despite previously criticising the Britain’s Got Talent star for relying on cover versions.
The Scottish singer-songwriter, who yesterday premiered her comeback single, ‘Slow It Down,’ caused outrage amongst Boyle’s loyal fanbase in 2010 when she claimed she ‘wasn’t a good advert for British music.’
However, the 24-year-old told the Daily Record that she was happy to pen a track for the global sensation whilst taking time out from the recording of her third album, ‘Life In A Beautiful Light.'
She said: “When I was off, my publisher asked me if I would be interested in writing songs for other folk.
“So I wrote this song called Little Things, which is not on the album, for Susan Boyle, and it went right up there. Simon Cowell listened to it but obviously didn’t like it.”
The ‘This Is The Life’ vocalist also attempted to clear up her previous comments about Boyle, adding: “I thought Susan should have won Britain’s Got Talent.
"I just said, when she was nominated for a Brit Award, that I felt a lot of her songs were covers and thought it would be better if they were original.”
