Kid Rock's next album will take inspiration from an unlikely source - troubled singer Amy Winehouse.
The rocker/rapper, 37, insists he is such a fan of Winehouse's last album, Back to Black, he plans to channel it when he returns to the studio.
He says, "The only thing I've been listening to lately is Amy Winehouse. She's got me into all that old school soul thang.
"Her album is so great, it's made me go through all my old Stax and Motown records again. I'd really like to add a little of that flavour to my music.
"Hip-hop's turned into bad pop music. People don't believe in half of the current rappers and especially don't believe in what they have to say. No one's really a killer or a gangsta. That's why I'm singing more."
