Jimi Hendrix Coming EXCLUSIVELY to Rock Band

Rolling Stone has confirmed a rumor we’ve heard not too long ago about seeing much more Jimi Hendrix in Rock Band. Coming next week (seriously), Jimi’s full album “Axis: Bold as Love” will be hitting Rock Band as DLC, along with a previously unreleased track “Valleys of Neptune,” which will be the title track from a NEW Jimi Hendrix album. (Full track listing below.)

Harmonix has an exclusive agreement with the Hendrix estate to release his other studio albums as DLC in the future, in addition to an inclusion of a Jimi Hendrix in-game avatar, replica instruments, and according to Rolling Stone, potentially a Jimi Hendrix: Rock Band standalone title.

The specific tracks being released include:

  • “Up From the Skies”
  • “Spanish Castle Magic”*
  • “Wait Until Tomorrow”*
  • “Ain’t No Telling”*
  • “Little Wing”*
  • “If 6 Was 9″*
  • “You Got Me Floatin’”*
  • “Castles Made of Sand”*
  • “She’s So Fine”*
  • “One Rainy Wish”*
  • “Little Miss Lover”*
  • “Bold As Love”*
  • “Valleys of Neptune”

* Denotes Family Friendly track compatible with LEGO Rock Band.

UPDATE: The tracks are the usual $1.99 each, or $19.99 for the 13 song album pack.

    Looks like I’ll be buying another full album on Rock Band. Thank you Harmonix!

    “Little Wing”* is all you had to say.

  • Francesco Poli says:

    That’ll teach Guitar Hero to treat rock icons as cover band artists.

    Also: Spanish Castle Magic. Raise your hands if you sincerely thought that you’ll never play the proper version after GH1.

    I take it next month we’ll be shredding to Purple Haze and Hey Joe. E-P-I-C.

    I was honestly hoping for a concurrent US/Rock Band release of Barenaked Ladies’ new album, but this is awesome too.

    This is unbelievable. Just when you begin to question and doubt HMX, they blow your mind.
