Predicted to be a chart topper, Amy Winehouse’s posthumous album appears to be more eagerly anticipated by the public than her previously promised third album, which now will always remain pending.
Like many deceased artists, such as the late Kurt Cobain, Amy’s legacy will continue to haunt the sound-waves. Her unmistakable raw, earthy vocals evoke such emotion that it feels eerily disquieting to know that she is no longer with us.
The Lioness has been compiled by her close friend and producer Remi. He admits that, since the album only contains two of her own tracks, both of which are unfinished, Amy would not have released it herself. The C.D is a compilation is comprised of leftovers that span her pop career, from her cover of The Girl from Ipenama, recorded when she was just eighteen, to unreleased cover tracks and finally to her last studio sessions.
This is by no means a collection of undiscovered musical gems; rather it is an intimate expose of a musician’s trials and errors.
