It is the final installment in his posthumous album trilogy and includes collaborations with Stephen Stills, Johnny Winter, and many more.

Today, Hendrix's estate, along with Legacy Recordings has announced that this spring, fans can expect a brand new album from the guitar maven titled Both Sides Of The Sky. It started with Valleys of Neptune in 2010, then People, Hell and Angels in 2013. It is produced by his sister, Janie Hendrix, and longtime Hendrix catalog producers John McDermott and Eddie Kramer, who engineered Hendrix's original recordings.

According to Billboard, the unreleased songs were recorded between 1968 and 1970.

The new album is filled out with 13 different tracks, 10 of which have never officially been released before.

Both Sides of the Sky also marks the first complete release of a jam between Hendrix and Texas guitarist Winter, backed by Cox and CSN&Y drummer Dallas Taylor, on Guitar Slim's Things I Used to Do.

Chief priest, 2 others dead in Tokyo shrine stabbings
The attacker was the chief priest of the shrine more than a decade ago, but was demoted from the post and succeeded by his sister. A female accomplice also died in the attack, and the priest's driver was injured, Tokyo Metropolitan Police said.

Even though Jimi Hendrix split the scene nearly 50 years ago now, that hasn't stopped him from cranking out full albums of new material on a semi-regular basis.

The latest album includes Hendrix's previously unheard version of Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock", the songwriter's longing reflection on missing the historic 1969 countercultural festival in upstate NY. He's worked on all four of Hendrix's albums before the legend's death in 1970. "This is too (expletive) incredible", said Kramer.

Kramer calls the archival compilation incredible that even 40 or 50 years later, listening to the archives still has him mesmerized.

"Both Sides of the Sky", which includes three previously released songs, focuses on highlighting the often-flamboyant Hendrix's skills inside the studio where he came to master recording techniques and effects.
