Amy Winehouse's unheard album to be released

An album of Amy Winehouse's unheard tracks is set to be released in December (11).

The tragic singer's father Mitch Winehouse has revealed he was impressed by the songs his daughter recorded before her death in July (11) and wants to share them with her fans.


He tells Britain's 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 her talent. From jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it took my breath away."


The record - which will hit stores on 5 December (11) - will feature tracks written at the height of the star's drug problems, as well as songs examining her relationship with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.


A slice of the profits from all sales will go towards the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity set up by her family to help other youngsters struggling with addiction issues.


Winehouse's death was ruled as "misadventure" from drinking too much alcohol.
