Winehouse producer: I still hear her voice

The producer for late singer Amy Winehouse says her new album, which dropped today, should be viewed as "a continuation and expansion" of the singer's song book.

"It’s not her next album that she was writing, that she actually wrote, and didn’t get a chance to record, so only a couple of songs from that but they’re just more songs of the same quality of her previous two albums," producer Salaam Remi told CNN.

"Lioness: Hidden Treasures" includes covers and some different renditions of a few Winehouse hits. Remi first started working with the singer in 2002 when she was then 18 years old. Dealing with her death has been hard, he said.

"I still hear her voice," Remi said. "I still look at different situations and imagine what she would say and what her comment would be and whatever it was ... Amy is a total comedian."

The producer also said he believes the late singer, who died of alcohol poisoning in July, would have approved of the new project.

"Definitely, at the end of the day who she trusted with it was myself and everyone involved," he said. "We wouldn’t have done it if we thought that it was something she would have a problem with at all."

    All of your comments are just evil and based with hate. Amy was a lovely musician and a very troubled child. Too bad no one actually stopped and listened to her, she was begging for help. I love you Amy and will always "hear" your voice because I will always buy and listen to your music. This blog is full of trolls who have nothing better to do than spew hatred. God help you all. Rest in peace Amy.

    Good riddance to another drugged out, boozed up bum. Perhaps the ugliest mug to ever warble a recording. She won't be missed. Call an exorcist for this poor fellow dealing with her voice.

    ATTN JOURNALISTS. Please stop referring to an album's release as being dropped? What does that mean? Who started this term? It really sounds like people who use this term are trying really really hard. Problem is, I'm not sure what their trying to achieve by using that term. WHY WHY WHY?????

    Maybe he needs to talk to a guidance councelor at school because he is hearing Amy Winehouse in his head. They will throw him in the nut house.

    I think lithium or maybe ECT might help with him hearing voices in his head.

  13. keep mliking it

    Good that her fans will be able to listen to the stuff she could not release... but I can't help but consider this a way to milk her for what she's worth.
