"Hendrix's new album" sounds about as unlikely as "LL Cool J at the ACMs," but in reality, Valleys of Neptune includes 12 previously unreleased tracks recorded by the Jimi Hendrix Experience just after the release of 1969's Electric Ladyland (and shortly before his death in 1970). It includes a finished version of the title track, which had never been heard anywhere before, as well a cover of Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" and alternate versions of Hendrix classics like "Stone Free," "Fire" and "Red House," the latter of which is currently LL's favorite jam.
"I've been listening to 'There's a red house over yonder,' " the rapper said, singing the lyrics. "So don't get me started!"
LL is probably better recognized as an actor nowadays, as he can be seen every week on CBS' "NCIS: Los Angeles," starring alongside Chris O'Donnell. The Grammy and VMA winner's last album was 2008's Exit 13, but his most recent musical contribution was "NCIS: No Crew Is Superior," a song about his character and his experiences on the show.
