Jimi Hendrix's rare blues cover to be released after 40 years

'The Filth And The Fury' director Julien Temple also signs up to film the video for 'Bleeding Heart'

Jimi Hendrix's rare blues cover to be released after 40 years
A rare Jimi Hendrix cover recorded over 40 years ago is set to be released next month.

'Bleeding Heart', the late veteran's take on Elmore James' classic blues song, is being lined up for a digital release on March 1 and a seven-inch vinyl release seven days later.

Originally recorded in April 1969, the studio recording, featuring Hendrix, bassist Billy Cox and drummer Rocky Isaac, has never been released until now.

Julien Temple, who previously directed the Sex Pistols documentary 'The Filth And The Fury' has also made a video to accompany the track.

The single will feature previously unreleased B-side 'Peace In Mississippi' and will be released in conjunction with his forthcoming posthumous studio album 'Valleys Of Neptune'.

News of the release comes after Hendrix's sister Janie Hendrix revealed that the late legend is to get his own version of the Rock Band computer game.
