Two previously unheard songs recorded by Amy Winehouse premiered on Radio 1 today. We're never too sure about posthumously released material from beloved artists, but this is happening regardless, so let's have a listen & decide whether it's any good.

The tracks are called Like Smoke (which features Nas) and Our Day Will Come, and are both taken from Wino's upcoming LP, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, which will be released on the 5th of December. Listen to Like Smoke here.

There's no denying her voice isn't at its best, and that the rapper's extended input feels like a filler, but the melody is pleasant, and the production more than able. Overall we're not entirely sold; the jury is still out as to whether unreleased material should remain.. unreleased.
