Amy Winehouse Family "Astonished" By New Album 'Lioness'

5 December 2011, 10:56

Star's father listened to the songs before approving them for new record.

Amy Winehouse's father has revealed that her family were "astonished" by the quality of her new album 'Lioness: Hidden Treasures'.

The record, which was released today (5th December), features archived songs compiled by the late singer's producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi.

Appearing on ITV's Daybreak, Mitch Winehouse said he listened to the tracks before the family decided to release the record.

"The estate, which I'm a part of - my ex-wife and I - we could decide to put it out or not put it out, and when we went to listen to the album it was a very difficult time for us," he said.

"It was very emotional. But we had to sit through it and after the first couple of songs we sort of calmed down a little bit.

"Our son was there as well and we all had to be in agreement that the album was of the same quality or better, in fact, than Frank and Back To Black, and we were more than pleasantly surprised."

A portion of proceeds from the sales of 'Lioness: Hidden Treasures' will go towards the new Amy Winehouse Foundation.
