Amy Winehouse’s Father Reveals More Posthumous Albums Are in the Works
It’s been nearly a year since Amy Winehouse tragically died on July 23, 2011. The U.K. soul singer was working on material for her third studio album before her untimely passing, which her family plans to release some time in the near future.
As MTV reports, Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse told BBC 6 Music that there are still a good amount of songs that have never been released yet. He doesn’t know exactly how many records the tracks could fill, but at least one disc is in the works.
“I’m not sure that there is much more but I’m sure that we will get at least one other album out, if not two,” Mitch revealed. “There are loads of covers, loads of them, but the problem is we don’t want want to rip anybody off. When her fans are so precious to us we don’t want to put out dross.”
One record has already come out since the passing of Amy Winehouse: 2011’s ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures.’ The collection featured previously unreleased songs and demos that were hand-picked by longtime producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi and the Winehouse family.
A track from rapper Nas and Winehouse, called ‘Cherry Wine,’ leaked online just a few days ago. It’s the second collaboration between the two after the ‘Lioness’ track ‘Like Smoke.’
