It’s been nearly five decades since Jimi Hendrix played his last guitar chord.

But fans can still look forward to a new release of music from Hendrix, who was 27 when he died on Sept. 18, 1970.

Hendrix has been called the most gifted instrumentalist of all time, according to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. An album containing 10 of his unreleased tracks is set for next year.

Rolling Stone and Spin magazines report that a 13-track recording called “Both Sides of the Sky” will be released March 9 on CD, digital and vinyl.

The full track list can be found on Rolling Stone’s website.
