Amy Winehouse: copertina e tracklist di Lioness: Hidden Treasures

0 191

Sembra proprio che l’uscita del terzo album di inediti di Amy Winehouse sia più vicina di quanto immaginiamo. Come sapete la cantante ha lavorato a lungo al progetto che ormai era quasi terminato. Durante una recente intervista il padre della cantante Mitch Winehouse ha dichiarato: “Ho trascorso così tanto tempo a rincorrere Amy, dicendole che non avevo capito che genio fosse. Pensiamo che il nuovo album sia una sorta di tributo alla sua memoria”.

Il padre ha inoltre affermato che la famiglia non avrebbe mai pubblicato il CD se non fosse stata sicura del fatto che le tracce sono al livello dei precedenti LP “Frank” e “Back To Black”. I produttori Salaam Remi e Mark Ronson hanno creato l’album dopo aver ascoltato centinaia di ore di registrazioni incise durante gli anni. A riguardo Remi ha dichiarato: “E’ stata un’esperienza emozionante. Penso che Amy abbia lasciato qualcosa che durerà negli anni. Ha creato un insieme di brano che fornirà ispirazione alle generazioni future”.

“Lioness: Hidden Treasures” vedrà la luce a partire dal 5 dicembre e parte del ricavato andrà devoluto alla Amy Winehouse Foundation. Ecco la tracklist del disco con la descrizione dei brani:

1. OUR DAY WILL COME (Reggae Version): Re-working of classic ’60s doo-wop song produced by Salaam Remi. Recorded May 2002.

2. BETWEEN THE CHEATS: New Amy composition recorded in London in May 2008 for potential inclusion on album three, produced by Salaam Remi.

3. TEARS DRY: First written by Amy as a ballad, this is the original version she recorded in November 2005 in Miami with Salaam. The later up-tempo version appears on Back To Black.

4. 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.

5. WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW: Beautiful reading of the Carole King-written Shirelles classic. Produced by Mark Ronson and featuring the Dap Kings with string arrangements by Chris Elliott. Recorded in September 2004.

6. VALERIE: One of Amy’s jukebox favourites, the original slower tempo version of the Mark Ronson-produced post-Back To Black single. Recorded in December 2006.

7. LIKE SMOKE featuring Nas: Amy and Nas became good friends after Amy name-checked the New York rapper on Back To Black’s Me & Mr Jones. Like Smoke is Amy finally doing a song with one of her favourite artists. Produced by Salaam Remi. Recorded in May 2008.

8. THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA: The first song 18-year-old Amy sang when she went to Miami to record with Salaam. He remarked that “the way she re-interpreted this bossa nova classic made me realise I was dealing with a very special talent. Her approach to the song was so young and fresh, it inspired the rest of our sessions”. Recorded in May 2002.

9. HALFTIME: Amy had talked to Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson of the Roots about working together. Amy and Salaam worked on Half-time since the Frank sessions. The result is beautiful. Recorded in August 2002.

10. 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.

11. BODY & SOUL with Tony Bennett: Cover of ’30s 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.

12. A SONG FOR YOU: Heartbreaking and emotional version of the classic made famous by Donny Hathaway, Amy’s favourite artist. The song was recorded in one take, just Amy and her guitar, at her home during spring 2009 as she battled her demons. Produced by Salaam Remi.
