Potential Posthumous Amy Winehouse Album?
Take heart Amy Winehouse fans, as all is not necessarily lost. Approximately a dozen previously unheard tracks by the late chanteuse, could be released reported The Guardian.

A spokesman associated with Winehouse’s record label, Universal, stated that she had “put down the ‘framework’ of around ‘a dozen’ new songs.”

“Amy had expressed an interest in getting back into the studio, and after some consultation everyone thought that would be a positive thing and a distraction from the other things she was dealing with. She had put down the bare bones of tracks and some were further along than others,” the spokesman explained.

"People were getting very excited, quite frankly they were really good. We heard rough cuts and they sounded like vintage Amy," he continued.

Winehouse released only two albums in her career- the debut, Frank in 2003, and 2006’s critical and commercial success, Back in Black.

Another source close to Winehouse’s management revealed that there were “masses of material”, that could potentially be made into more than one album.

"Amy was a writer, she was always writing songs. She had studios at home and would create demos. It seems that she was singing and playing drums to the last," the insider revealed.

However, the individual was careful to clarify that said material was in the early stages, requiring significant work with a producer.

Winehouse was found dead in her London home on July 23rd. Cause of death has yet to be determined pending toxicology report; however, a source close to the singer’s family reported that they believe her death was caused by swift alcohol withdrawal.

"Abstinence gave her body such a fright, they thought it was eventually the cause of her death," the source said.

The toxicology report is expected to take between 2 to 4 weeks.
