Amy Winehouse Drank Death, A new album that contains material previously unknown to the soul singer Amy Winehouse will be released a few months after her death by alcohol poisoning, her record company said Monday.
“Leona: Hidden Treasures,” features previously unreleased tracks, alternate versions of existing classics and a couple of new compositions by the singer, a statement of Island Records, said.
Which hits stores on December 5th.
The album “turns out to be a tribute to the artist, talent, and women and serves as a reminder of Amy? S extraordinary powers as a composer, singer and interpreter of classics,” the statement said.
The Sun newspaper reported that includes a track recorded by the “Rehab” singer while she was on heroin, as well as a song from the documentation of her turbulent relationship with her husband.
The tabloid said that £ 1 (€ 1.14, and 1.60) for each copy of the posthumous album sold will go to Amy Winehouse Foundation, which supports vulnerable young people in Britain and abroad.
Winehouse, 27, was found dead in her north London home July 23 after a long fight against alcohol and drugs.
An investigation into her death, revealed last week that the troubled singer had drunk soon after the abstention of three weeks and was poisoned by alcohol.
She was more than five times more than the British alcohol limit when she died, the inquiry heard.
Island Records, who released their debut album “Frank” and 2006 Grammy Award winning album “Back to Black”, said the album will be produced by close friends and collaborators Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi.
It was created in partnership with the family of Winehouse and management, the label says.
Winehouse’s father Mitch told the Sun that the album’s up to her standards.
“If the family felt that this album was not up to others to Amy, who never have agreed to release it. We believe it will remain a fitting tribute to her musical legacy,” he said.
“I never realized what a genius he was … that left me breathless.”
Some of the songs were recorded back in 2002, before Winehouse began her well-documented struggle with alcohol and drug addiction.
It also includes the last song he ever recorded, “Body and Soul”, a duet with legendary singer Tony Bennett. The pair recorded their version of the 1930 jazz tune of the famous Abbey Road studios in London in March.
After her death, “Back to Black” became Britain’s biggest selling album of the 21st century.
