2011 release. Following her tragic passing in July 2011, some of the producers and musicians who worked closely with Amy Winehouse, among them Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, spent time listening over the many recordings that Amy had made, before, during, and after the release of Frank and Back To Black. 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 treatment to Amy the artist and, as importantly, Amy the friend. Lioness: Hidden Treasures the third album from Amy Winehouse is a 12 track collection of previously unreleased tracks, alternate versions of existing classics, as well as a couple of brand new Amy compositions. Our Day Will Come (reggae version)- reggae reworking of the 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 she recorded for the Back To Black sessions. This is the one-take demo recorded in March 2006 by Paul O''Duffy.
