Amy Winehouse’s Posthumous Album Will Soon be Released
The signature voice of Amy Winehouse will be heard once more.
Island Records is set to release a posthumous collection of the British singer, which will be titled “Lioness: Hidden Treasures.”
The album had been produced by friends Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi over the last few weeks, and it will be Winehouse’s third release.
This album will feature 12 tracks of previously unreleased and rare recordings from the late singer, who died in July at 27.
And for every album that was sold, small portion of donation will also go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which her family established after her death to help those battling addiction.
According to a report in Britain’s “The Sun,” at an emotional family gathering last week, the singer’s dad, Mitch Winehouse, wept as he listened to the music, some of which he had never heard before.
Among the offerings on the album: a brand new song, “Between the Cheats,” a slower tempo version of her hit “Valerie.”
There will also be “A Song For You,” a cover of the Leon Russell song also performed by Winehouse’s musical idol, Donny Hathaway. Winehouse recorded it solo in the spring of 2009.
So, will you buy the album? I know I will!
