(Newser) – More than four decades after Jimi Hendrix's 1970 death, the guitar icon is releasing a new album tomorrow. People, Hell & Angels includes 12 previously unreleased tracks the rocker completed in the studio between 1968 and 1970, the Raw Story reports. The recordings "encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the elements—horns, keyboards, percussion, and second guitar—Jimi wanted to incorporate within his new music," according to a statement on his website. "People, Hell & Angels presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued." (Read more Jimi Hendrix stories.)
