Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, a collection of unheard Amy Winehouse recording is set to be released in a posthumous album in December.
Amy Winehouse died in July 2011, which means its about time for a posthumous album of recordings she made that haven’t been heard or published before. I don’t mean to seem disrespectful, it just seems to be the trend when a singer dies these days.
To be fair, Amy Winehouse had been working on her follow-up album to Back to Black for the two-years before her death so there are some new recordings for the album. One is said to include a song she wrote about her former husband Blake Fielder-Civil titled, ‘Between the Cheats’.
Some of the other titles include ‘Best Friends’, which Winehouse used to open her concerts. Also there will be duets and alternative versions of songs that have been included in other albums as well as songs that were cut from previous albums such as ‘Halftime’ and ‘The Girl From Ipanema’.
Amy Winehouse collaborators Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi are producing the album which is scheduled for release on December 5, 2011. Part of the proceeds from sales will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up after her death by her family for the benefit of people struggling with addiction.
