(Newser) – Amy Winehouse had written an entire album of songs before her death but sadly for the late singer's fans, most of it exists only on paper. The album would have been her third, but she was in no rush to release new material, says music producer Salaam Remi, who worked on Winehouse's albums Frank and Back to Black. Instead, she planned to record a jazz album with a "supergroup" including Questlove of the Roots, Remi says.

Two of the tracks Winehouse wrote were recorded and will be on the compilation album Lioness: Hidden Treasures, which will be released early next month, the AP reports. Asked whether other artists will record the songs Winehouse left unrecorded, Remi says "That's up to her family." For now, he tells USA Today that her fans might find a little comfort in Lioness. "She left something behind that was really good, rather than just pain." The singer, who would have turned 28 in September, died in July from what a coroner determined was accidental alcohol poisoning.
