Amy Winehouse did not complete a third album before her death.

The 'Rehab' singer had been working on new songs since 2008, but her long time collaborator Salaam Remi - who produced tracks on her two albums 'Frank' and 'Back to Black', and was working with her at the time of her death - said nothing had been completed specifically for her third record.

Speaking on New York radio station Power 105.1 FM he said: "We were working on it; it's not a complete album. We had a lot of things going, there are recordings, but first things first, I think. We're trying to focus on what's at hand and what her family wants to do. So those reports of a release are false."

He did, however, add that the 'Tears Dry on Their Own' singer was as at her creative and emotive best when it came to writing new material up until she died.

He added: "To put it all in a nutshell, Amy loved to sing, to write- that ability never left her. She was very good at channelling her emotions into lyrics, and then being able to sing them. She was in a place to go forward and make it happen.

"The way that Amy and I always created was she would write and we would toss ideas around.

"Amy had strong opinions on everything. She was very opinionated about what she liked. At the end, she was a real person. She had a huge heart."

Amy was cremated on Tuesday (26.07.11) in North London.
