New Amy Winehouse album to be released

Monday October 31, 2011

A new Amy Winehouse album is set to be released with all profits going to the charity set up by her father.

The album is said to feature unheard material recorded before her death.

Amy's father, Mitch told the Sun, the songs "took his breath away" when he heard them.

"Had the family felt this album wasn't up to the standard of Amy's others, Frank and Back To Black, we'd never have agreed to release it.

"We believe it will stand as a fitting tribute to her musical legacy."

The collection is said to contain original tracks as well as covers, including Amy's recording of legendary jazz song Body and Soul with Tony Bennett.

Music producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson are said to have pulled the album together after listening to hours of vocals by the jazz singer.
