New Jimi Hendrix album to be released

  • A new album of previously unreleased material from Jimi Hendrix is to be released on Tuesday.

    More than 40 years after his death, the album follows the success of the guitar legend’s new single Somewhere, which went to the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart last month.

    People, Hell And Angels has been touted as a collection of 12 unreleased studio performances by Hendrix. It was originally planned as a follow-up to his 1968 album Electric Ladyland.

    Hendrix died in London at the age of 27 from an accidental drug overdose.
