Amy Winehouse's posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, will be released on Dec. 5.
The album, Winehouse's third studio release, was compiled by friends and musicians Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson, along with her family, her record company Island Records announced on Monday.
The new album will feature 12 tracks that were made before, during and after the release of Winehouse's first two albums, Frank (2003) and Back to Black (2006).
It was said by all who worked with Amy that she never sang or played a song the same way twice. It quickly became apparent to Salaam and Mark that they had a collection of songs that deserved to be heard, a collection of songs that were a fitting testament to Amy the artist and, as importantly, Amy their friend, read a statement posted on Winehouse's Web site.
In July, the 27-year-old was found dead at her north London apartment.
A recent coroner's inquest report confirmed that Winehouse died from drinking too much alcohol. Her alcohol level at the time of her death was five times the drink-drive limit, BBC News reported.
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, her father Mitch Winehouse said in a statement obtained by The Guardian.
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 and we believe it will stand as a fitting tribute to Amy's musical legacy, he added.
Partial profits from album sales of Lioness: Hidden Treasures will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was created on Sept. 14 in honor of what would have been Winehouse's 28th birthday.
Winehouse first arrived on the mainstream music scene in 2006, thanks to her hit Rehab and her sophomore album Back to Black, which earned the singer five Grammy Awards and more than five million copies sold worldwide.
Just days following Winehouse's death, Back to Black returned to music charts around the world, including iTunes Top 10 Albums charts in more than 15 countries.
