Amy Winehouse had written all the songs set to be released on her third album and even picked out song titles.

Music producer Salaam Remi said the late soul singer was not in a rush to release her third album. Instead, Remi said Winehouse was planning to drop a jazz album first with a "supergroup" including ?uestlove of the Roots.

Only two of the tracks Winehouse wrote were recorded and appear on her compilation album, "Lioness: Hidden Treasures," out Dec. 5 in the United Kingdom, and a day later in America.

Remi said he hopes the album will show that Winehouse was more than a singer, but a songwriter and a musician who was actively involved in her music.

Remi, who worked on the singer's two albums, "Frank" and "Back to Black," produced most of the upcoming CD, saying

The producer held a press listening for "Lioness" on Tuesday. The 12-track set features covers and stripped-sounding versions of released Winehouse songs, with some completed in one take.

Winehouse died in July from accidental alcohol poisoning at the age of 27.
