Just a couple days ago, news broke that Amy Winehouse’s family is putting together a new compilation album of outtakes and B-sides called Lioness: Hidden Treasures. Now we’ve got a first listen. It’s Winehouse’s 2002 cover of Ruby and the Romantics’ “Our Love Will Come,” a slinky R&B number first released in 1963 and since covered by k.d. lang and Christina Aguilera.

Winehouse adopts a smooth reggae groove that would have fit right in with Frank. Longtime Winehouse producer Saleem Remi (aka the one who isn’t Mark Ronson) helmed the track to get that classic sound. The single comes out December 5th, but you can listen to a BBC radio rip below.
