Amy Winehouse had recorded new music before her sudden passing last summer, and now fans will have the opportunity to hear it. Island Records is releasing Lioness: Hidden Treasures, a 12-track album that will be sold on December 5.
Amy’s loving father reportedly cried when he listened to the songs. Mitch said. “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.” He continued, “From jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it really took my breath away. I never realized what a true genius she was.”
Amy’s second album, Back to Black, dropped in 2006. Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi produced the new tracks. A donation from the sale of each album will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
