Marking this occassion, former One Direction singer Zayn Malik shared his own cover of the music icon’s track ‘Angel’ on what would have been his birthday.
“We are pleased that Zayn has been inspired to use original music from Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Angel’ in his recording of the song”, The Hendrix Experience said of the cover in a statement.
“We’re hopeful that this version of a Hendrix classic will enlighten a new generation of listeners about Jimi’s genius and further propel his continuing legacy”.
