Posthumous Amy Winehouse album to be released

Amy Winehouse's father Mitch has promised that there was a "great deal" more music from the singer to come following her death in July, and on Monday Winehouse's rep confirmed that a posthumous record is on the way.

The 12-track listing for the U.K. album, titled "Lioness: Hidden Treasures," features alternate versions of songs you've heard before, new songs like Winehouse's duet with Tony Bennett,and unreleased tracks.

A statement says that artists Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson worked closely with Winehouse's family, management and record label to craft the album, which will be released in the U.K. on December 5.

The statement notes that £1 from the sale of each album will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was created to "help children who are suffering from economic disadvantage, who are ill [and] who are suffering with drug abuse," her father Mitch has told CNN.

The track listing for the U.K. release of "Lioness: Hidden Treasures" is as follows:

  • “Our Day Will Come (Reggae Version)"
  • “Between The Cheats” (A new song Amy Winehouse recorded in London in May of 2008.)
  • “Tears Dry” (The original version Winehouse recorded in November, 2005.)
  • “Wake Up Alone” (The one-take demo Winehouse recorded in March of 2006.)
  • “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”
  • “Valerie” (The original version recorded in December of 2006.)
  • “Like Smoke” featuring Nas
  • “The Girl From Ipanema” (Recorded in May of 2002, this was the first song Winehouse sang when she traveled to Miami to work with Salaam Remi.)
  • “Halftime”
  • “Best Friends” (Live version, recorded in February of 2003.)
  • “Body & Soul” with Tony Bennett
  • “A Song For You”

    It is appropriate that they released her CD on Halloween. Look at her.

    Say what you want about her, but this CD will sell millions all over the world because we barely started enjoying her music.

    obviously many of you have no talent and don't know genius when you hear it. amy whinehouse was a voice that comes along maybe once every decade. she may have been alcoholic and she may have abused drugs and many of her performances may have suffered because of it. but when she was good. she was amazing. i wish you people that don't know what your talking about would do us all a favor and stop commenting on something that you don't know anything about.

      if you have to slip a postscript to explain a joke- particularly one as obvious as that- it probably wasnt worth posting in the first place.

    Of course there will be a posthumous album of Winehouse. They're hoping to squeeze a little more money out of her.

    It is so sad that art sells better after the artist has died. I hope the money will be of some comfort to her family.

      It will be so much more comforting to us if they stop showing her picture. Have some pity on us.
