Mitch Winehouse, father of troubled singer Amy Winehouse, has decided to release an album and is currently busy selecting tracks, including Frank Sinatra covers, to include on his debut effort.

A source tells The Sun: “Mitch has been working on it for a while now. Amy always credits her dad with getting her into singing. He loves music. He has a good voice and wants a go at turning professional.”

“Mitch has approached his daughter’s label, Island Records, about a deal. If that doesn’t work, he can always call on his daughter, who has her own label, Lioness,” added the source.
