Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings announced Wednesday that they will release Hendrix's Both Sides of the Sky on 9 March, 2018.

A new posthumous Jimi Hendrix album has been announced, featuring 10 previously unreleased tracks. The tracklist is still unknown, however, Pitchfork reports that it will feature a cover of Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock". The majority of the new material was cooked up by Hendrix's outfit Band Of Gypsys, which featured Billy Cox on bass and Buddy Miles on drums.

Band of Gypsys - which before Hendrix's September 1970 death was heard exclusively on their eponymous 1970 live album - is represented by 1969 studio recordings of Muddy Waters' "Mannish Boy" and the Hendrix original "Lover Man".

"Jimi's true home was the studio - that's where the music and the magic happened", Kramer said in a statement about the project.

"It sounds like Crosby, Stills & Nash except it's on acid, you know", Kramer, laughing, said of '$20 Fine'. He continues: "It's an incredible thing".

"The first thing is you put the tape on and you listen to it and the hairs just stand up right on the back of your neck and you go, 'Oh my God". "It's an wonderful thing". "Hear My Train A Comin", meanwhile, gathers the original Jimi Hendrix Experience lineup: Hendrix, Noel Redding, and Mitch Mitchell. It is produced by his sister, Janie Hendrix, and longtime Hendrix catalog producers John McDermott and Eddie Kramer, who engineered Hendrix's original recordings.

"It was wonderful just to watch him in the studio or live". "The brain kicks off the thought process - it goes through his brain through his heart and through his hands and onto the guitar, and it's a seamless process. There's never been another Jimi Hendrix, at least in my mind".
