'People, Hell and Angels' contains 12 previously unreleased tracks recorded in 1968 and '69 and will be released on March 5, the musician's website announced.

Hendrix recorded the songs during a break from his band, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, as he considered new, experimental directions for his follow-up to 'Electric Ladyland'.

He plays keyboards, percussion and a second guitar on the album.

Hendrix died from drug-related asphyxia in 1970 at the age of 27.
