Lioness: Hidden Treasures will feature 12 songs, in a combination of new songs that she was working on prior to her death, cover versions of classic songs, previously unreleased tracks, and alternative versions of her hits. A demo version of "Wake Up Alone" and alternate versions of "Valerie" and "Tears Dry on Their Own” will be included.

"Body & Soul," which was her final studio recording and appeared on Tony Bennett’s Duets II, will also be included on the album. The album was put together byy Winehouse's longtime collaborators, producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi.

"Halftime" and "The Girl From Ipanema,” are two new tracks that will be featured on the album. Winehouse’s father, Mitch, said he has never heard "Halftime,” before.

“If the family had felt that this album wasn't up to the standard of Frank and Back To Black we would never have agreed to release it and we believe it will stand as a fitting tribute to Amy's musical legacy," he said in the statement from Island Records.
