Hendrix to release new album 33 years after death

A NEW Jimi Hendrix album is to be released next year, almost 33 years after the legendary guitarist's death.

'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.
