Amy Winehouse's "Lioness: Hidden Treasures" To Release In December, Nas Featured

The first posthumous record from the British songbird will release on December 5th.

Following Amy Winehouse's sudden death earlier this year, a collection of unreleased tracks will be packaged and released as Lioness: Hidden Treasures, releasing December 5th.

According to, Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, both of whom worked with Winehouse, worked closely with Winehouse's family, management and record label Island Records to compile the album. The 12-track LP consists of unreleased material, alternate versions of already available songs and several new cuts.

Check the tracklist and description below.

“Our Day Will Come (Reggae Version)” – reggae re-working of classic 60’s doo wop song produced by Salaam Remi. Recorded May 2002.

“Between The Cheats” – new Amy composition recorded in London in May 2008 for potential inclusion on album three produced by Salaam Remi.

“Tears Dry” – originally written by Amy as a ballad, this is the original version she recorded in November 2005 in Miami with Salaam. The later uptempo version appears on “Back To Black”.

“Wake Up Alone” – the first song recorded for the “Back To Black” sessions. This is the one-take demo recorded in March 2006 by Paul O’Duffy.

“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” – Amy’s beautiful reading of the Carole King written Shirelles classic. Produced by Mark Ronson and featuring the Dap Kings with string arrangements by Chris Elliott who did all the strings for Mark’s tracks on “Back To Black”. Recorded in September 2004.

“Valerie” - one of Amy’s jukebox favourites. This is the original slower tempo version of the Mark Ronson produced post “Back To Black” single. Recorded in December 2006.

“Like Smoke” featuring NAS – Amy and Nas became really good friends after Amy name checked the New York rapper on “Back To Black’s” “Me & Mr Jones”. “Like Smoke” is finally Amy doing a song with one of her favourite artists. Produced by Salaam Remi. Recorded in May 2008.

“The Girl From Ipanema” – the first song the 18 year old Amy sang when she first went to Miami to record with Salaam. Salaam remarked that “the way she re-interpreted this bossa nova classic made me realise that I was dealing with a very special talent. Her approach to the song was so young and fresh, it really inspired the rest of our sessions.” Recorded in May 2002.

“Halftime” - Amy had talked to Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson of the Roots about working together. “Halftime” is a song that Amy and Salaam had worked on since the Frank sessions. The result is beautiful. Recorded in August 2002.

“Best Friends” – “Frank” era live set opener produced by Salaam Remi. Probably the first song that early Amy fans would have heard live. Recorded in February 2003.

“Body & Soul” with Tony Bennett - cover of 30’s jazz standard with hero Tony Bennett. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios London in March 2011 and produced by Phil Ramone. Amy’s final studio recording.

“A Song For You” - heartbreaking and emotional version of the Leon Russell classic made famous by Donny Hathaway. Hathaway was Amy’s all-time favourite artist and the song was recorded in one take, just Amy and her guitar, at her home in London during the spring of 2009 as she battled her demons. Produced by Salaam Remi.

    i can't believe "Me and Mr. Jones" is really about NaS! i only heard this recently and thought it was nothing but a rumor, but apparently not...

  • Not So Hyped

    So after Back to Black she only recorded 4 new songs, over duration of 5 years?? Or are they gonna spread the already thin vault of unreleased songs and make numerous half-assed releases (combining them with old material, different takes and live material) to make as much money as possible for a number of years? Sorta like they did with Pac, but spread way, way thinner?

      She probably doesnt have a whole lot of unreleased material like that bruh, she was a major major dope fiend for a while there, probably wasnt even thinking about the studio
