Amy Winehouse’s unfinished album to be released posthumously
London: Amy Winehouse’s unfinished third album, which she was working sporadically on for the last two years, could reportedly receive a posthumous release.
Within hours of Winehouse’s death, her 2006 album ‘Back To Black’ had topped the iTunes chart and fans flocked to buy her most famous single, Rehab.
Sources said that the songs were at demo stage but there was “a lot of material” available, reports the Telegraph.
Winehouse’s parents, Mitch and Janis, will have the final say on its release and it is expected to outsell ‘Back To Black’’s five million copies.
Industry experts described Winehouse as a true talent and said there would be huge demand for a posthumous album.
Phil Alexander, editor-in-chief of Mojo magazine, said: “It is inevitable that her death will elevate her reputation and that there will be a third record released.”
Adam Liversage of the British Phonographic Industry said: “You might argue that Amy Winehouse was already in the pantheon of greats. Her songs have become standards.
“Already there has been a lot of anticipation for a new album and if it was released posthumously that will only increase the interest in her,” he added.
