New Amy Winehouse Album!!!

In light of Amy Winehouse's untimely death, even people who wouldn't normally listen to her music reflected on her talent and formed their own opinions of her work.

So it was only a matter of time before she got a posthumous album, and they want to get it out before the dust completely settles. Her cause of death was determined, closing the book on her final days, and her dad is supposedly working on a biography.

 The new album is coming out on December 5, and it will be called "Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures."

No points for the title. Not a great start. But is the material any good? 

Ask her father, and your answer is yes. Mitch Winehouse told The Sun, "I spent so much time chasing after Amy, telling her off that I never realized what a true genius she was. It wasn't until I sat down with the rest of the family and listened to this album that I fully appreciated the breadth of Amy's talent, from jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it really took my breath away."

Of co
urse, he might be a little bit biased.

The album will contain 12 unreleased songs, from a reggae re-working of '60s doo-wop standard "Our Day Will Come" to a Mark Ronson-produced version of Carole King's "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow." Salaam Remi, who produced much of the album with Ronson, told The Sun, "I believe she has left something beyond her years. 

 She has put of body of work together that will inspire an unborn generation."

If you're wondering, The Sun reports that only one track was recorded while she was under the influence (of hard drugs) -- the last song, "A Song For You."

The rest is apparently drug free, though alcohol isn't mentioned. If it's anything like her existing work, it will be worth a good listen.
