NEW YORK, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- "People, Hell & Angels," an album with 12 previously unreleased recordings by Seattle guitarist Jimi Hendrix, is set for release in March, his estate said.

Hendrix died in 1970 at the age of 27. He asphyxiated on his own vomit after taking sedatives.

His estate, Experience Hendrix LLC, and Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, announced Monday the new CD will be available March 5.

"These 12 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. 'People, Hell & Angels' presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued and provides a compelling window into his growth as a songwriter, musician and producer," a news release said.
