A new Jimi Hendrix album of previously unreleased material is set to be released in 2013.
The LP entitled People, Hell And Angels was recorded in 1968 and 1969. The songs were meant for First Days Of The New Rising Sun, the follow up to Electric Ladyland that Hendrix was working on when he passed away. It is set for release in the US on March 5, 2013 according to Rolling Stone. A UK release date is yet to be set for the new record.
Tracks on the record apparently feature Hendrix experimenting with horns, keyboards, percussion and a second guitar.
Meanwhile, Hendrix’s set from the 1969 Woodstock festival is set to receive a cinematic release later this month. The show will be screened on November 29 and December 4 at more than 30 cinemas across the UK, and in movie theatres globally.
The gig is being released to celebrate the 70th year of Hendrix’s birth and will play alongside the film Live at Woodstock, which features interviews with band members Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell, as well as engineer Eddie Kramer and Woodstock promoter Michael Lang. Live at Woodstock is directed by Bob Smeaton, whose previous credits include the film Festival Express.
