Mitch Winehouse is to release a new album raising funds for the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Winehouse states that his daughter Amy was involved in picking tracks for 'But Beautiful' prior to her death in 2011. The album, his second solo venture, will be released on September 29 through Amy's label, Lioness Records, with money going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was set up to help young people with drink and alcohol addictions.

"This is still the album that Amy helped me make," Winehouse told BBC News. "There were so many more songs that we could have done and here they are. It's just great to be able to get out and sing, it's something I love to do."

"I feel that when I'm onstage, Amy's onstage. She wouldn't let a little thing like not being here stop her from jumping onstage."

Earlier this year Mitch Winehouse rubbished reports that a hologram version of his daughter will be going out on tour. It was reported in March that businessman Alki David is masterminding a project to bring the singer back to the stage using 3D computer imagery, the same kind of technology that brought rapper Tupac to California's Coachella festival in 2012.
