Plans for a new Amy Winehouse album have been announced, following last week’s revelation of the cause of her death. The record will be called Lioness: Hidden Treasures and is scheduled to be released this December on Island Records.
The album will feature 12 rare recordings and unreleased music from Winehouse with production from longtime collaborators Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson.
Reportedly, the album has already been heard by close family members, including Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse. Of the music, he 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. From jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it really took my breath away. I never realized what a true genius she was.”
Lioness: Hidden Treasures will be Amy’s third album and first posthumous release since her untimely death this past July.
