A new Amy Winehouse album is to be released just four months after the singer’s death.
Lioness: Hidden Treasures will comprise 12 tracks of previously unreleased material including two new songs. The album has been assembled by Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, the two producers she collaborated most closely with. The album, which is due for release on December 5, will also feature alternative versions of existing songs.
The singer's father, Mitch Winehouse, spoke about the news: "I spent so much time chasing after Amy, telling her off that I never realised what a true genius she was. It wasn't until I sat down with the rest of the family and listened to this album that I fully appreciated the breadth of Amy's talent, from jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it really took my breath away.
"Halftime, I'd never heard before, is just incredibly beautiful. If the family had felt that this album wasn't up to the standard of Frank and Back to Black we would never have agreed to release it and we believe it will stand as a fitting tribute to Amy's musical legacy."
