Amy Winehouse is reportedly set to front a new band.

The troubled hitmaker - who has ditched her wild lifestyle and is now dating a new man, film director Reg Traviss - is teaming up with The Roots drummer ?uestlove and guitarist Raphael Saadiq to form the super-group.

However, according to the drummer, the unnamed band are finding it difficult to find time to record any tracks due to the 'Back to Black' singer's ongoing visa problems.

Amy was recently denied entry to the US on the grounds of possessing cannabis and an assault the star was later cleared of.

?uestlove explained to The Sun newspaper: "The group will definitely happen. It's just the closest she can come to the States is Jamaica.

"I'm off to France soon so I'll see if she's up for discussing it over dinner. We're Skype-ing the s**t out of each other."

A friend of the 26-year-old hitmaker recently revealed she has "totally transformed" her life thanks to new boyfriend Reg and is completely focused on her music career.

Sam Shaker said: "She is totally transformed. I am so proud of her. She has stopped smoking completely. Reg has sorted her out.

"She says she is the happiest she has ever been. He's made a new person of her. He is a civilised man, a gentleman. She is so blissful and has turned herself around for him. She said she has new music coming out soon and she will be fit and healthy to promote it."
