This past Tuesday Amy Winehouse’s first posthumous release officially hit retailers. Her album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, was largely produced by Salaam Remi, whom she worked with closely since the beginning of her career. Recently, Remi and Nas both spoke on their connection and friendship with Amy and more.

Here’s Amy Winehouse’s first video in support of her forthcoming posthumous release Lioness: Hidden Treasures. This video features clips from past performances, videos and more.
The album, which drops on Dec. 6, contains 12 reworked and unreleased tracks from the late singer. Longtime collaborator Salaam Remi handled the majority of the production, including this track. I actually had a great sit-down with the god earlier this week. Look out for that on Monday.
Following the Nas-featured “Like Smoke,” here’s the second release off Amy Winehouse’s first posthumous album. The Salaam Remi-produced “Our Day Will Come” (recorded in 2002), is a re-working of the classic 1960’s doo wop song by Ruby And The Romantics. Here’s your first listen at her latest song premiered earlier today on BBC’s 1Xtra radio in London. Fans can purchase Lioness: Hidden Treasures via Island Records on December 5th.

A bittersweet treat. My Hot97 family got the scoop on this new Amy Winehouse x Nas song, “Like Smoke” which posthumously fulfills the late singer’s wish to collaborate with her friend “Mr. Jones”. It’s a gorgeous retro-soul track, in typical Winehouse style and produced by Salaam Remi back in 2008. “Like Smoke” is the lead single off Lioness: Hidden Treasures, a collection of songs Amy recorded before her death this past July.
New Music: Amy Winehouse feat. Nas “Like Smoke” (Produced by Salaam Remi)
“…like a polygamist with a twist, will I marry again, maybe, I guess….”
“I be out in London, Camden, hunting for the answers why the God take away the homie. I can’t say that I’m a firm believer that we all meet up in eternity. Just hope the big man, show me some courtesy….“
Earlier today, The UK Sun broke the news on Amy Winehouse’s first posthumous album, titled Lioness: Hidden Treasures. The album is said to feature 12 unreleased songs that Amy was working on before her tragic death. From the track list, I’m especially excited to hear “Like Smoke,” her collabo with Nas, and her remake of “Girl From Ipanema.”
Her father offered some emotional words at the listening
“It wasn’t until I sat down with the rest of the family and listened to this album that I fully appreciated the breadth of her talent. From jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it took my breath away.”
Salaam Remi also spoke on Amy’s legacy.
“When I listened back you would hear some of the conversations in between — that was emotional. It has been hard, but it has also been an amazing thing. Amy was a gifted girl. I believe she has left something beyond her years. She has put a body of work together that will inspire an unborn generation.”
The album will be released on Dec. 5th.
Track List and The UK Sun’s brief description of each song after the jump…
“Our Day Will Come (Reggae Version)” – reggae re-working of 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 recorded for the “Back To Black” sessions. This is the one-take demo recorded in March 2006 by Paul O’Duffy.
“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” – Amy’s beautiful reading of the Carole King written Shirelles classic. Produced by Mark Ronson and featuring the Dap Kings with string arrangements by Chris Elliott who did all the strings for Mark’s tracks on “Back To Black”. Recorded in September 2004.
“Valerie” – one of Amy’s jukebox favourites. This is the original slower tempo version of the Mark Ronson produced post “Back To Black” single. Recorded in December 2006.
“Like Smoke” featuring NAS – Amy and Nas became really good friends after Amy name checked the New York rapper on “Back To Black’s” “Me & Mr Jones”. “Like Smoke” is finally Amy doing a song with one of her favourite artists. Produced by Salaam Remi. Recorded in May 2008.
“The Girl From Ipanema” – the first song the 18 year old Amy sang when she first went to Miami to record with Salaam. Salaam remarked that “the way she re-interpreted this bossa nova classic made me realise that I was dealing with a very special talent. Her approach to the song was so young and fresh, it really inspired the rest of our sessions.” Recorded in May 2002.
“Halftime” – Amy had talked to Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson of the Roots about working together. “Halftime” is a song that Amy and Salaam had worked on since the Frank sessions. The result is beautiful. Recorded in August 2002.
“Best Friends” – “Frank” era live set opener produced by Salaam Remi. Probably the first song that early Amy fans would have heard live. Recorded in February 2003.
“Body & Soul” with Tony Bennett – cover of 30’s jazz standard with hero Tony Bennett. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios London in March 2011 and produced by Phil Ramone. Amy’s final studio recording.
“A Song For You” – heartbreaking and emotional version of the Leon Russell classic made famous by Donny Hathaway. Hathaway was Amy’s all-time favourite artist and the song was recorded in one take, just Amy and her guitar, at her home in London during the spring of 2009 as she battled her demons. Produced by Salaam Remi.
