A new Jimi Hendrix album is on the way. The posthumous record, titled “People, Hell and Angels,” will feature a number of songs the late musician recorded between the years 1968 and 1970.
The tracks were expected to be a part of Hendrix’s follow-up to 1968’s “Electric Ladyland,” but Hendrix died on Sept. 18, 1970 and they were never released. The new record will be released on March 5, and can be previewed on NPR’s First Listen.
“‘People, Hell and Angels’ is Jimi Hendrix’s new album with twelve recordings which encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the elements — horns, keyboards, percussion and second guitar — Jimi wanted to explore within his new music,” the official statement on JimiHendrix.com reads. “‘People, Hell and Angels,’ presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued and provides a compelling window into his growth as a songwriter, musician and producer.”
