If you sometimes find yourself going out and looking across the water, then we come bearing great news!

The Amy Winehouse biopic, Back to Black, will make its exclusive streaming debut on Peacock next Friday, July 5, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment confirmed today. A physical release with a slew of bonus features is scheduled to drop on Tuesday, July 23. Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy), the film stars Marisa Abela (Industry) as the ill-fated British singer, who rose to global fame by way of her 2006 album, Back to Black.

"Told through Amy’s eyes and inspired by her deeply personal lyrics, the film explores and embraces the many layers of the iconic artist and the tumultuous love story at the center of one of the most legendary albums of all time," reads the official synopsis. Jack O’Connell (Ferrari), Eddie Marsan (Deadpool 2), and Lesley Manville (Phantom Thread) round out the cast.

"It's important to feel like we're celebrating her," Taylor-Johnson said during an interview with TIME. "But at the same time, it's important to show the complexity and make her a fully rounded human being with her own agency, because I've felt like a lot of her had been lost along the way. She wasn't just a victim of her tragedy. The music and the songwriting and the Ivor Novello awards and the Grammys, those achievements were being lost."
