Music Of Jimi Hendrix Lives On As New Album Is Released

Jimi Hendrix fans rejoice, because brand new material has been released today more than four decades after the fabled rock guitarist’s death.

The much anticipated album entitled People, Hell and Angels has been painstakingly put together by the Hendrix estate and the singer’s producer Eddie Kramer. Designed to show off Hendrix' creativity, the record was originally planned as the follow up to the influential, chart-topping album of 1968, Electric Ladyland.

Judging by the success of ‘Somewhere’, a single released by the Hendrix estate in February which hit number one on America’s Billboard Hot Singles chart, this album is sure to delight long term devotees as well as unearth a whole new generation of Hendrix fans. With 12 previously unreleased studio songs included on the track list, People, Hell and Angels takes the listener on a journey through a unique array of sounds and styles incorporating everything from horns, keyboards to percussion, as Hendrix explored new directions in his music before his untimely death in 1970.

Janie Hendrix, the singer’s step-sister and CEO of Experience Hendrix, the company overseeing the star's estate, told Reuters that: “After the huge success of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and those first albums, he wanted to branch out more, and the blues sound on this is just different from the others.”

People, Hell and Angels is now available for purchase.
