As we get closer to the release of Jimi Hendrix’s Both Sides of the Sky, we’re getting more and more awesome previews.

This time around, we’re treated to “Lover Man,” a previously unreleased track that like “Mannish Boy” that was previewed last month featureBand of Gypsys bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles.

A lot of archival releases often don’t live up to the hype, but Both Sides of the Sky, which contains ten never before released songs, seems to be setting a new standard for posthumous releases.

Both Sides Of The Sky is due out March 9 and is currently available for pre-order at JimiHendrix.com.
