Amy Winehouse’s father reveals plans for more posthumous recordings – they just have to find them. Mitch Winehouse reveals in this nypost article that Amy’s unreleased recordings are “all over the place.”
Amy Winehouse’s first posthumous release, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, debuted at No. 1 on the music charts last December selling 194,000 copies in its first week. Producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson pulled the 12 songs together for Lioness: Hidden Treasures after listening to thousands of hours of vocals by the singer, many of them from sessions for her hit albums Frank and Back To Black.
Mitch Winehouse has been quoted as saying, “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.”
Amy Winehouse fans can expect more new music to be released posthumously. “There will be more albums, but it depends,” the late soul singer’s father, Mitch Winehouse, told us during the rained-out Bridgehampton Polo match on Saturday. “Believe it or not, we’re still looking. There was stuff all over the place like [with producers] Mark Ronson, Salaam Remi,” he explained of finding her tracks.
“It’s probably going to be more of her live stuff,” Winehouse continued. “I’ve got five tracks from when she was a kid in the National Youth Jazz Orchestra in the UK, and they’re great, but [we haven’t decided] whether we want to put them out.” The Amy Winehouse Foundation will be throwing a gala Oct. 11 at the Waldorf-Astoria.
In an interview with BBC 6 Music, the late singer’s father said that there was more unreleased material which wasn’t used on last year’s ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures’ collection, but insisted he didn’t want to disappoint his daughter’s fans by releasing “dross” – but there are more releases in the pipeline
Mitch Winehouse has also recently released a memoir titled Amy My Daughter. Author proceeds from the book go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
