Amy Winehouse will release a new, posthumous studio album later this year.

The album, which is titled 'Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures', will be released on December 5 and has been put together by producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi using tracks that the singer left unfinished when she passed away earlier this year.

'Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures' features 12 tracks, including covers of The Shirelles' 'Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow', Donny Hathaway's 'A Song For You' and Ruby & The Romantics' 'Our Day Will Come'.

The album will also feature alternative versions of Winehouse's previously released material, including a demo version of 'Wake Up Alone and slowed down versions of 'Tears Dry On Their Own' and 'Valerie'. It also includes 'Body & Soul', her duet with Tony Bennett which was released earlier this year.

The record also includes a number of previously unreleased tracks. Among them are 'Halftime' and 'The Girl From Ipanema' – which were recorded during her sessions for debut album 'Frank' – and 'Like Smoke', which sees the singer duetting with Nas. Another new song, 'Between The Cheats', is thought to chronicle her troubled marriage with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

£1 from each copy of the album that is sold will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity set up in the singer's honour.

The tracklisting for 'Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures' is as follows:

'Our Day Will Come'
'Between The Cheats'
'Tears Dry'
'Wake Up Alone'
'Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow'
