Today is a special day as we celebrate an artist with immeasurable talent and an endless well of potential who left us too soon. Amy Winehouse today releases Lioness: Hidden Treasures, a 12-track collection featuring unreleased material, alternate song versions from a woman who was known to bring something new with every delivery, and a couple of brand new compositions as well. The album was put together by longtime collaborators Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson along with input from Amy's family. In the video above, hear Salaam Remi himself share the story behind Lioness. Below, we're very excited to share a free download for a new track called "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" as well.
With the December 6th fast approaching, we're sure many of you want to reserve yourself a copy of the upcoming Amy Winehouse album. Shoot, you probably are going to want to go all out and pick up a CD that you can put under your pillow - don't front. And unlike mp3's that the internets can't necessarily run out of, we are pretty sure that these CD's will soon be backordered, especially with the holidays coming up. So, just a heads up that pre-orders are now available for Lioness.
Also, above is the video for "Our Day Will Come," a beautiful montage of Amy footage and photos.
