When Amy Winehouse tragically passed away at the age of 27 this summer, the talented songstress left behind an all-too-short musical legacy. But while Winehouse left fans with her memorable hits and two studio albums, there was undoubtedly still more to come. Now, it’s no longer a matter of “if” fans will get to hear more from the late star, but when.

According to an announcement on Winehouse’s official website, Island Records will be releasing a posthumous album on Dec. 5. The album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, will feature 12 previously unreleased tracks from Winehouse, including alternate versions of classics (“Tears Dry,” “Valerie”), a number of covers (the Shirelles’ “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow,” bossa nova classic “The Girl From Ipanema,”  Donny Hathaway’s “A Song for You”) and new compositions, including her duet with Tony Bennett.

The website calls the album, which was compiled by Winehouse’s longtime collaborators Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson, “a fitting tribute to the artist, the talent and the woman and serves as a reminder of Amy’s extraordinary powers as a songwriter, a singer and an interpreter of classics.”

    Can’t wait! And it’s not much of a wait. Was hoping there would be some more recent tracks but I’ll take any Amy tunes I can get.

    The snarky cynic in me would say, “Posthumous Amy Winehouse album? Sounds redundant….”, but I seriously would get it because–despite her having being a drugged-up, alky mess–I respect the talent she had and her VOICE. What pipes! So sad that she didn’t have the chance to grow into her potential. RIP again, Ms. Amy….

    my friend’s sister makes $70 hourly on the computer. She has been fired from work for 8 months but last month her income was $8194 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here (NuttyRich).(com)

    Let the family’s mad dash for cash begin! I think Tupac’s 18th posthumous album is due to drop the same week.

  • Shecky

    And so it begins. It’s corpse-picking time! What I want to know is–when do the nude photos come out? And how about that second unreleased album? And didn’t she maybe scribble out some “poems” or something? Doodles? Gotta be more than this somewhere.

  • PN

    This will sell huge! I think it will be one of the best selling holiday period releases. This is another good way to remember Amy Winehouse. Her death has really ached a lot of us and this album will make her remember her even more.

  • Classy!

    I will be buying this album. I’ve been wanting new music from her for years now. It saddens me to get in this fashion, but I know it will be amazing. Something to look forward to after such a loss.

  • Michael

    Very sad to still think about. Hopefully, it will do well for Amy’s fans, despite her losing her life too soon.

  • Irwin

    I’ve been waiting for this for a couple of months. It’s too bad I didn’t appreciate her until she was gone, but her first two albums now are high on my playlists.
