Amy Winehouse Will Release Posthumous Album
From beyond the grave, the “Lioness" sings. Britain’s The Sun reports that a posthumous album by Amy Winehouse is set to be released Dec. 5 of this year.
Titled "Lioness: Hidden Treasures," the album will include rare recordings, like a slower tempo version of “Valerie” and “A Song For You,” unreleased songs from as far back as 2002, and a new song about the rocky relationship she had with ex-husband Black Fiedler-Civil.
“Between the Cheats” was supposed to be a part of her upcoming third album, before her death in July.
People also reports that Winehouse’s family decided to donate some of the album sales to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which they created in memory of the late singer to “support and care for young people” battling addictions.
Winehouse had a public fight with her addiction to drugs and alcohol. The five-time Grammy winner eventually lost her life to an alcohol overdoes at the young age of 27. According to CBS, she was found dead in her London home with “a blood alcohol level of 0.4 percent,” much higher than he British and U.S. legal drunk-driving limit of 0.08 percent.
The Sun was with the Winehouse family “for the first listen to the surprise collection” put together by Winehouse’s close friends, producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson. Remi told The Sun, "I believe she has left something beyond her years. She has put a body of work together that will inspire an unborn generation.”
This emotional gathering also had her father, Mitch, 60, wiping away tears of joy while listening to her talented voice, saying “I spent so much time chasing after Amy — telling her off — that I never realized what a true genius she was.”
