Following on from the release of last year’s Lioness: Hidden Treasures, official biographer and father of Amy Winehouse, Mitch, has confirmed that at least one – if not two – additional Amy albums will be released.
In a conversation with BBC 6 Music, Winehouse said that “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. There are loads of covers, loads of them, but the problem is we don’t want want to rip anybody off. When her fans are so precious to us we don’t want to put out dross.”
Although Lioness was released to strong sales, a lot of the criticism surrounding the album circulated on the obvious and inevitable lack of polish occurring from, well, you know, Amy not actually being there to finesse the recordings. Whether there’s enough high-quality material to sustain two further albums is a pretty big gamble with Amy’s legacy on Mitch’s part. I’d hate for him to over do it (pun not intended). The first anniversary of Winehouse’s passing falls in a couple of weeks on July 23rd. I will be attempting a tributary bee-hive.
Don’t forget we’ve got 10 signed hardback copies of Mitch’s opus, Amy Winehouse, My Daughter to giveaway. To get your hands on a copy, tell us the title you would have given Amy’s biography in the comments section on this page. Not this one.
