New Jimi Hendrix album due in 2013

More than 40 years after his passing, a new Jimi Hendrix album is on the way.

Due March 5, 2013, “People Hell And Angels” is a collection of 12 previously unreleased recordings by the guitar icon.

The set features music recorded in 1968 and 1969 as Jimi works on material apart from the Jimi Hendrix Experience; sonically, the songs suggest new, experimental directions.

The legendary guitarist was considering these new sounds for “First Rays Of The New Rising Sun” (eventually released in 1997), the planned double-album follow-up to 1968’s “Electric Ladyland.”

Hendrix toys with horns, keyboards, percussion and a second guitar, exploring fresh diversions from his legendary guitarwork.
