Hendrix music exclusive to Rock Band

New single plus Axis: Bold As Love.

Harmonix and MTV have announced that Jimi Hendrix's music will be exclusive to the Rock Band platform from now on.

Next week sees the release of the album Axis: Bold As Love both as individual songs (0.99 / 1.49 per track) and an album pack (9.99 / 14.99) on 30th March (Wii and Xbox 360) and 1st April (PS3).

Fans will also be able to get the new single "Valleys of Neptune" next week. Valleys of Neptune is taken from the album of the same name, which is comprised of previously unavailable Hendrix studio recordings.

"Much like Jimi's music, we feel that Rock Band represents an amazing, innovative medium for music discovery and interaction that can have a profound affect on those who experience it," said Janie Hendrix, CEO of Experience Hendrix LLC.

Earlier this year MTV denied that it was working on a standalone Jimi Hendrix game.
