First Listen: Amy Winehouse’s ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures’ Closes With “A Song For You”
[photogallerylink id=40651 align=left]It was said by all who worked with [lastfm]Amy Winehouse[/lastfm] 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 testament to Amy the artist and, as importantly, Amy their friend.
The third album Lioness: Hidden Treasures from Winehouse, without question one of the most talented, original, and best loved artists to emerge in popular music for decades, will be released in the United States tomorrow, December 6. Winehouse’s pain and confusion is palpable. Her disoriented delivery of the [lastfm]Leon Russell[/lastfm] ballad is hard to bear, but producer Remi lets us in on that fumbling.
