Amy Winehouse Posthumous LP ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures’ Out In December

Oct 31st, 2011 // 9 Comments

Much like Michael Jackson’s posthumous collection Michael, which was released during the holiday season last year, an album of unreleased material from Amy Winehouse titled Lioness: Hidden Treaures will arrive on December 5. Amy’s frequent collaborators Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi reportedly assembled the LP’s 12 tracks, which include cover versions and previously unheard renditions of Amy’s own tunes “Tears Dry On Their Own” and “Wake Up Alone”.

Said to be among the covers are Winehouse’s takes on the Shirelles’ “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, Donny Hathaway’s “A Song for You”, Astrud Gilberto’s “The Girl From Ipanema” and a reggae version of Ruby & the Romantics “Our Day Will Come.” A version of her recent Tony Bennett duet “Body And Soul” will also appear on Hidden Treasures.

MTV News notes that the songs included were recorded either before, during or after the releases of her albums Frank (2003) and Back To Black (2006), and two of the most recent tracks on the LP were recorded in 2008: a duet with Nas called “Like Smoke” and the unheard original tune “Between The Cheats”.

There is no word yet on whether Winehouse, whose death was officially attributed to “misadventure” last week following an inquest, has any further unreleased material lying around other than what is being released on Lioness.

    Hands down, Susan Boyle. Her new album is spectacular!!

  3. Sam Worden

    This is Susan Boyle’s breakthrough album. Fabulous. Fulfills her promise in every way. She sings everything from torch songs to Depeche Mode and Tears for Fears. Plus, two terrific originals written for her by Emelie Sande and Steve Mac. Never had a CD before where I loved every track, different though they are. Great job everybody.

  7. Linda Sharon

    I love all the song but RETURN really rings the bell for me. I love this woman’s singing and I love her. She is humble and grateful for everything and has not let ‘show biz’ change her essence. Her singing really touches my heart.

  8. Susan Boyle rocks! I get my CD’s on Friday!

  9. Susan Boyle’s new album is spectacular – the best one this year, no doubt about it.
    Her first two were wonderful as well – this lovely Lady is the best singer in the world today. She is magnificent!
