Lioness: Hidden Treasures will feature 12 unheard tracks

A new Amy Winehouse album is to hit shelves next month. 

Lioness: Hidden Treasures will feature 12 previously unreleased songs that the singer recorded at various points during her career. 

Among the collection will be alternative versions of existing tracks and a couple of new compositions revisited and worked on by producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson.

The new album has the backing of Amy‘s loved ones.

‘If the family had felt that this album wasn’t up to the standard of Frank and Back To Black, we would never have agreed to release it,’ her dad Mitch Winehouse says in a statement. ‘It is a fitting tribute.’

Record label Island have agreed that £1 from each album sold will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was set up by her father in September.

Amy was found dead at her home in Camden, north London, on 23 July, aged 27.

Last week, an inquest into her death recorded a verdict of misadventure after it was revealed that she had more than 5 times the legal drink-drive limit of alcohol in her body.

Lioness: Hidden Treasures will be released on 5 December.
