Amy Winehouse had already penned the songs for a third album, and had even thought of song titles.

Additionally, the late soul singer has plans to create a jazz album with a “supergroup,” music producer Salaam Remi told The AP.

“She had written down everything she wanted to do,” Remi said.

Remi said that the jazz album with a "supergroup” would include drummer ?uestlove of the Roots and saxophone player Soweto Kinch.

Remi, who worked with Winehouse on Frank and Back to Black, also helped produce most of her posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, which will be released on Dec. 5 in the United Kingdom, and Dec. 6 in the U.S. The 12-track album features only two of the songs that Winehouse had written for her third album. The rest of the album is made up of covers and different versions of released Winehouse songs.

"She was taking her time with it, and at the end of the day all of her songs are somewhat autobiographical, so she had to live through something, then get out of it and then look back at it to be able to write about it," he said.

Winehouse was found dead at the age of 27 in her London home on July 23. It was later determined that the troubled soul singer died from accidental alcohol poisoning.
