AWinehouseG0530_01_X17new.jpgAmy Winehouse may be gone, but her legacy will continue with the release of a brand new album featuring 12 tracks ... hitting stores this December.

The singer's father released the following statement to The Sun:

    "It wasn't until I sat down with the rest of the family and listened to this album that I fully appreciated the breadth of Amy's talent. From jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it really took my breath away. I never realized what a true genius she was."

Producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi produced the album which will be released under Island Records.

The album will feature new songs including "Between the Cheats" and a slower version of her hit "Valerie."
