Amy Winehouse is racing to get her new album ready for her husband's release from jail.
Amy, 24, is pushing ahead in the studio to get her album finished in time for husband Blake Fielder-Civil's homecoming - which could be at the end of this year.
A friend close to Amy told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Now she has some kind of timescale for Blake's release it has given her some focus. She wants something to impress him with because he has accused her of just sitting around doing nothing while he has been serving time."
Amy is also planning to include a tribute to Blake on the album, and is planning to write "For my Blakey X" on the sleeve, possibly even using it as a song title.
Blake is currently in HMP Edmunds prison in Suffolk, serving time for grievous bodily harm (GBH) and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
He was sentenced to 27 months in July, but could be out by December 30 for time already served and good behavior.
Meanwhile, Amy is said to have found a new house.
She has her heart set on a $5 million house with a gym and swimming pool in North London - although her father Mitch would like her to move further away, to help her continuing recovery from drug and smoking related health problems.
Mitch said Tuesday: "It's all positive news as far as her family is concerned and a move to the country will only benefit her."
