It’s hard to believe that it’s already been three years since the tragic death of Amy Winehouse. But her family continues to keep her musical spirit alive — on July 29, father Mitch Winehouse announced plans for a solo album made with his daughter in mind.
Winehouse will release But Beautiful on Sept. 29 via his daughter’s label, Lioness Records. Mitch says Amy helped him choose the tracklist shortly before her death. It is composed of songs that did not make the swing crooner’s 2011 debut album, Rush of Love.
“This is still the album that Amy helped me make,” the elder Winehouse said.

But Beautiful will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which oversees drug and alcohol support and education services for those battling addiction.
“It’s something I can do that connects with Amy’s memory and raises money for what we believe in,” Winehouse said of the charity, which he started shortly after his death.
