Jimi Hendrix has been deceased for 42 years, but when you're the Greatest Guitarist of All Time (per Rolling Stone and many others), your legacy never dies.
His unparalleled blend of technical acumen and experimentation across rock, blues and psychedelic genres made him a legend in his own time and beyond.
In honor of the 70th anniversary of his birth, a "new" album of Hendrix songs, People, Hell & Angels, is due out March 5. Here's the first single, "Somewhere" ...
The album consists of previously unreleased Hendrix songs recorded between 1968-1969. The musical visionary died the following year at the age of 27.
CBS will air several of album's songs during an episode of Hawaii Five-0 on January 20. See statement from Hendrix's family and track list below:
Janie L. Hendrix, the president of Experience Hendrix LLC, said:
"We're thrilled to be able to release People, Hell & Angels, during the celebration of the 70th anniversary of my brother's birth. The brilliance of the album serves to underscore what we've known all along: that there has never been and never will be a musical force equal to his and that we cherish and take inspiration of what he left us both now and for many generations to come... simply eternity."
