Amy Winehouse's posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, has topped the UK album chart.

The record, which features 12 original tracks and covers, was compiled by long-time musical partners Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson.

Proceeds from the album will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

A coroner ruled the singer, who was found dead in her London flat on 23 July, died as a result of drinking too much alcohol.

A verdict of misadventure was recorded after the inquest heard the singer had 416mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood.

The first single from Winehouse's album, Our Day Will Come, also entered the singles chart at 29.

Producer Mark Ronson, who co-produced the star's breakthrough album Back To Black, said Lioness was "an insight into the songs she loved".

"She really was an encyclopaedia of these old jazz and soul standards," he told BBC Breakfast. "She could pick up a guitar and play any of them."

Ronson said he had initially refused to work on the tribute album.

"I didn't know if they necessarily needed what I had to give and it was a bit soon for me to spend that time listening to her voice on a loop, like you do when you're in a studio working on a record.

"Then I heard this vocal she'd recorded for Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow and I thought, 'this is really special and I want to be a part of this and make one more piece of something magical with Amy.'
