Amy Winehouse New Album Of Unheard Material To Be Released

An album of unheard material by Amy Winehouse is due to be released later this year.

The album, entitled 'Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures', features twelve songs, including new original tracks and covers.

Among the new songs is one called 'Halftime', which was apparently originally recorded in August 2002.

The Sun reports that the singer's producers Salaam Remi Gibbs and Mark Ronson put together the record after listening back to studio sessions.

Amy's father Mitch Winehouse told the newspaper that the 12-track album shows that the 'Tears Dry On Their Own' star was "a true genius".

"Had the family felt this album wasn't up to the standard of Amy's others, 'Frank' and 'Back To Black', we'd never have agreed to release it," he said.

"We believe it will stand as a fitting tribute to her musical legacy."

'Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures' will apparently be released on December 5, with £1 from each copy sold going towards the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
