London, Dec 5 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Amy Winehouse might have passed away several months ago but the family still feel that the loss is fresh. Following the release of her posthumous album in the United Kingdom last weekend, Winehouse’s father Mitch say listening to the tracks have not been easy for the family.

The album “Lioness: Hidden Treasures” was released to the stores on Friday (the 2nd of December 2011) in the United Kingdom and eventually worldwide. The album is a project by Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi who both worked with the singer when she was alive.

The album which has 12 tracks includes previously unreleased tracks of the singer. Some critics say the songs are not exceptional and argue that Winehouse might not have released some of the tracks if she has been alive.

Nonetheless, Mitch told the Associated Press that listening to the tracks for the first time “…was very emotional. But we had to sit through it and after the first couple of songs we sort of calmed down a little bit. Our son was there as well and we all had to be in agreement that the album was of the same quality or better, in fact, than ‘Frank’ and ‘Back To Black’, and we were more than pleasantly surprised.”

Winehouse was found dead in her London home last summer. He died from alcohol poisoning.
