After much hype and build-up, the new Jimi Hendrix release of Both Sides of the Sky is out today (March 9) and with it comes a new video for the song “Lover Man.”

The video is packed with all sorts of archival footage and enough psychedelic visual effect to make you trip sober.  (Would we want it any other way?)

Both Side of the Sky, itself, features ten studio records that have never been released until this album and featureBand of Gypsys bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles.  The LP is available on CD, digital and vinyl at JimiHendrix.com.
