Amy Winehouse announces goddaughter’s album details

13-year-old Dionne Bromfield is first release on singer’s Lioness Records

Amy Winehouse has confirmed details of the first release on her new record label, Lioness Records.

Her 13-year-old goddaughter Dionne Bromfield is to release a 12-song album of soul covers under the title ‘Introducing Dionne Bromfield’ on the label.

Tracks on the album – which features music recorded by Winehouse‘s backing band – include ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’, first made a hit by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell in 1967. Also included will be The Marvelettes‘Beechwood 4-5789’ and ‘My Boy Lollipop’, famously sung by Millie Small in 1964.

Despite starting her career by singing other people’s songs, the goddaughter of Winehouse is already starting to write her own music.

Dionne‘s writing all the time,” said Winehouse in a statement. “I want her to experience life so that she can write songs. But while she’s doing a covers album she’s not singing all her songs, she’s not so consumed by it.”

Speaking of why she decided to do an album of classic soul covers, Bromfield explained that she prefers that genre to any other. “Mostly I listen to Motown – that’s proper music. And these songs I’ve chosen, I just grew up around them,” she said.

‘Introducing Dionne Bromfield’ is released on October 12. A single, ‘Mama Said’, is out on November 2.
