Jimi Hendrix's unheard tracks to be released in 2013
Twelve previously unreleased tracks by legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix are to be released on a new album next year.
The late musician's website said that the songs on 'People, Hell and Angels' were recorded in 1968 and 1969, the BBC reported.
It is believed that Hendrix had intended the songs for 'First Days Of The New Rising Sun,' his follow-up to 'Electric Ladyland,' which he was working on when he died.
The album is due to be released in the US on March 5, while a UK release date has yet to be set, the channel reported.
The website said that the tracks suggest "new, experimental directions," as he worked on material separate from the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
It added that he explored "fresh diversions from his legendary guitar work", trying out horns, keyboards, percussion and a second guitar.
Rolling Stone magazine revealed the new album's cover artwork on Wednesday.
