It was a sad, sad day when we learned of Amy Winehouse’s untimely death. Now, she is likely to be more remembered for the music she created instead of the media firestorm that surrounded her daily life.
In August, we’d learned that Amy’s house was robbed and some of her unreleased songs were stolen. Now, we’ve found that an album of Amy’s unheard recordings is set to be released in December.
The record is titled, Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures and will feature never heard before songs as well as some cover tracks. Reportedly, the new album contains a song titled Between The Cheats, which is about her ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil. Another track is a cover of Donny Hathaway’s song, A Song For You.
Amy’s father Mitch listened to the album and gushed about his late daughter in a new interview. He said, “I spent so much time chasing after Amy – telling her off – that I never realized what a true genius she was. It wasn’t until I sat down with the rest of the family and listened to this album that I fully appreciated the breadth of her talent. From jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it took my breath away. One of the new songs on the album, Halftime, I’d never heard before. It is just incredibly beautiful.”
