The album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, the third album from Amy Winehouse, without question one of the most talented, original, and best loved artists to emerge in popular music for decades, will be released in the United States on December 6th through Universal Republic Records. The 12 track collection features previously unreleased tracks, alternate versions of existing classics as well as a couple of brand new Amy compositions, and has been compiled by long-time musical partners Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson in close association with Amy's family, management and UK record label Island Records. Lioness: Hidden Treasures proves a fitting tribute to the artist, the talent and the woman, and serves as a reminder of Amy's extraordinary powers as a songwriter, a singer and an interpreter of classics.

After hearing the album Amy's father Mitch Winehouse had this to say: "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. "Halftime", I'd never heard before, is just incredibly beautiful. If the family had felt that this album wasn't up to the standard of Frank and Back To Black we would never have agreed to release it. We believe it will stand as a fitting tribute to Amy `s musical legacy."

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the album will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

"Our Day Will Come (Reggae Version)" and "Like Smoke" featuring Nas are among the first singles featured at radio this week.

Lioness: Hidden Treasures track-listing:

"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 favorites. 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 favorite 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 favorite 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


"Lioness" consists of 12 previously unreleased archive recordings and alternate takes, compiled by long-time friends and producers including Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson, in the wake of her death this July, aged just 27.


In the wrong hands, this might have been a slapdash collection, but "Lioness" is presented with genuine tenderness and it never paints Winehouse as a tragic diva stereotype.


The focus, quite rightly, is her vocal talent - not just its soulful power but also its stylistic range. And while there's an obvious melancholy in hearing Winehouse's tones again, there's also dreamy warmth, demonstrated by the opening reggae version of "Our Day Will Come" (originally by 1960s group Ruby & The Romantics Our Day Will Come: Very Best of).


Some of these tracks predate Winehouse's 2003 debut album, "Frank": there's her jazzy teenage take on "The Girl From Ipanema" and the arguable stand-out, elegant original soul melody "Halftime" (dating back to 2002).


Her casual charm and command elevates the familiar covers, whether it's The Shirelles' "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" or another reworking of The Zutons' "Valerie".


There are also curious collaborations: Like "Smoke" is infused with Nas's rap homage to his Camden 'homie', while Winehouse's final studio recording is "Body & Soul", a vintage jazz cut with 85 year old crooner Tony Bennett.


Essentially, the material on "Lioness" should have been a foundation, not a memorial, but it feels like a passionate affair.
The end notes are sweet, full of unmistakeable personality and resonance.
