This is news to Mitch Winehouse.

The father of late singer Amy Winehouse came upon some new information recently (well, new to him) when he found out that Beyoncé covered Amy's hit "Back to Black" with Andre 3000 for the film The Great Gatsby

"First I have heard about Beyonce and Back to Black. Sounds like some of you don't like the idea," he tweeted on Tuesday.

Mitch didn't clearly state how he felt about the superstar making his daughter's track her own, but he did throw another idea out into the Twittersphere.

"I don't know this but what if Beyonce gave £100,000 [close to $152,000] to foundation. Do you know how many kids that would help? Just putting it out there," Winehouse wrote, before again stating, "Let me repeat. This is the first I have heard of Beyonce doing Amys song."

B's hubby Jay-Z is producing the soundtrack for the film, which will be released by Interscope Records. "It's a very different take on 'Back to Black,'" a record company source told E! News.
