Ultimate Guitar

A new song from the forthcoming Jimi Hendrix album "People, Hell & Angels" has been released online.

"Earth Blues", which you can hear below, is the opening track to the album which is available digitally in early March. It will see a physical release on April 1.

All 12 tracks on the album were recorded between 1968 and 1970 as potential tracks on "First Days Of The New Rising Sun", the successor to his album "Electric Ladyland".

Jimi's original producer Eddie Kramer, who recorded all of his albums and several live concerts including his classic Woodstock set, helped oversee the release of this new record.

Eagle-eyed Hendrix fans may already have several of these songs on other releases. The only really new songs are "Let Me Move You" and "Inside Out", though the latter is an early version the better-known "Ezy Ryder".

    for a dead guy he sure writes a lot of songs
    This isn't new, but that's okay. "New" Hendrix is better than no Hendrix.
    I wish Janie Hendrix would stop using milking Jimi's legacy for every cent she can get. I'm glad his unreleased songs were released, but in hindsight, with all these songs being released over and over it's nothing but money to her.
    "Hey! Have you heard the latest from Hendrix?" 'cause i have! i can say so in 2013!!! awesome!
    Hendrix comes out with a new album every two years but Tool cant even get their shit together.
    ummm, that song isn't new. Some money-grubbing ***** needs to be slapped in the face somewhere. Hard.
    you said she makes 72 an hour, but then you say she got 13k for a few hours of work. 180 hours is a bit more then a few hours... Im beginning to think your lying.
    This sounds like an unused 2nd guitar part from a track trying to be passed off as a main riff
    Hendrix wouldnt like this. Producers care only for money. This is not true Hendrix. Just some **** who found some good recordings and glued them together under his trademark. Shame. Jimi is turning in the grave.
    It's good news to me, as long as their producers aren't making any money here.
    Yeah I have this song as apart of a cd collection from a few years ago
    I really think that on a site called ULTIMATE GUITAR, a new jimi hendrix song should probably be the headlining news article over some bullshit headline about a 0.01% chance about a led zeppelin reunion where UG probably just twisting words robert plant said in his sleep
    Sure thing, there is a reason. Maybe because he died before he could do it. What do you think?
    Riff sounds a lot like Love Rollercoaster from RHCP
    You mean Love Rollercoaster sounds like Earth Blues from Hendrix
    By new songs they probably mean new recordings of them.. That he had guest musicians on trying to experiment with new soinds
    how come we get like the same song from jimi like 5 times just repackaged or remixed and we cant get another Seattle native Kurt Kobain's alleged "white album"
    Great song! a version of Earth Blues was on First Rays of the new Rising Sun, so not really new.
