|Amy Winehouse in Toronto May 2007|
With news of the first Amy Winehouse release coming post-humously titled Lioness: Hidden Treasures, Fans need a Buyer Beware that this in fact is not the long-awaited third full Studio Album they've been waiting for. Lioness also is the name of her Record Label, launched in 2009.
In fact, of the twelve tracks on the Disc, only one is in fact technically "new", titled Between the Sheets produced by long-time collaborator Salaam Remi. The remainder of the Tracks appear to be Covers, Demos and Out-takes from prior Albums which already have surfaced the Internet prior.
The Track Listing is as follows:
1. OUR DAY WILL COME (Reggae Version)
2. BETWEEN THE CHEATS
3. TEARS DRY
4. WAKE UP ALONE
5. WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW?
7. LIKE SMOKE featuring Nas
8. THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA
10. BEST FRIENDS
11. BODY & SOUL with Tony Bennett
12. A SONG FOR YOU

Rule of Thumb, if Winehouse truly wanted to release these the first-time around, she would have done so. That's all I'm saying. Regardless, Fans should be clamouring to hear some "new" Music from the immensely-gifted Vocalist. Something tells me this is only the first of many more to come.
Lioness: Hidden Treasures hit stores December 5, 2011 via Universal Music Canada.
