The fans of late Amy Winehouse may not have to wait much longer for her music, her label will release her first posthumous album “Lioness: Hidden Treasure.” Winehouse, who died four months ago from over drinking will have new music for fans. The album will feature new music intended for her third album, as well as unreleased music and remixes to a few hits. The news however may not be thrilled for fans, being the “Back To Black” singer recorded many songs for her third album.

The Official Tracklisting + Song Details:

1. OUR DAY WILL COME (Reggae Version): Re-working of classic ’60s doo-wop song produced by Salaam Remi. Recorded May 2002.

2. BETWEEN THE CHEATS: New Amy composition recorded in London in May 2008 for potential inclusion on album three, produced by Salaam Remi.

3. TEARS DRY: First written by Amy as a ballad, this is the original version she recorded in November 2005 in Miami with Salaam. The later up-tempo version appears on Back To Black.

4. WAKE UP ALONE: The first song recorded for the Back To Black sessions. This is the one-take demo recorded in March 2006 by Paul O’Duffy.

5. WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW: Beautiful reading of the Carole King-written Shirelles classic. Produced by Mark Ronson and featuring the Dap Kings with string arrangements by Chris Elliott. Recorded in September 2004.

6. VALERIE: One of Amy’s jukebox favorites, the original slower tempo version of the Mark Ronson-produced post-Back To Black single. Recorded in December 2006.

7. LIKE SMOKE featuring Nas: Amy and Nas became good friends after Amy name-checked the New York rapper on Back To Black’s Me & Mr Jones. Like Smoke is Amy finally doing a song with one of her favorite artists. Produced by Salaam Remi. Recorded in May 2008.

8. THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA: The first song 18-year-old Amy sang when she went to Miami to record with Salaam. He remarked that “the way she re-interpreted this bossa nova classic made me realize I was dealing with a very special talent. Her approach to the song was so young and fresh, it inspired the rest of our sessions”. Recorded in May 2002.

9. HALFTIME: Amy had talked to Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson of the Roots about working together. Amy and Salaam worked on Half-time since the Frank sessions. The result is beautiful. Recorded in August 2002.

10. BEST FRIENDS: Frank-era live set opener produced by Salaam Remi. Probably the first song that early Amy fans would have heard live. Recorded in February 2003.

11. BODY & SOUL with Tony Bennett: Cover of ’30s jazz standard with hero Tony Bennett. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios London in March 2011 and produced by Phil Ramone. Amy’s final studio recording.

12. A SONG FOR YOU: Heartbreaking and emotional version of the classic made famous by Donny Hathaway, Amy’s favorite artist. The song was recorded in one take, just Amy and her guitar, at her home during spring 2009 as she battled her demons. Produced by Salaam Remi.

 

The album will be in stores December 5th. Not only will fans be receiving a gift, but they will also be giving too. For each album sold $1 will be given to the ‘Amy Winehouse Foundation’ which helps children’s charities.
