In celebration of her upcoming nine-date stint on the 2014 Experience Hendrix Tour, this afternoon Ana Popovic has officially released a riveting, slashing, sexy cover of “Can You See Me” from the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s landmark 1967 album, Are You Experienced.
Popovic will begin the tour in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, where she’ll share the stage with Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, Brad Whitford of Aerosmith, Zakk Wylde, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Johnson and Dweezil Zappa.
“I’ve always found it challenging to cover Hendrix tunes,” says Popovic of the video. “There is really not much you can do. His tunes are already worked out to their max. The arrangements, the guitar lines, the lyrics, his vocals… In this particular tune, what I didn’t want to change was the energy Hendrix had going, that frantic energy and excitement. But, for me, it always was leaning towards a slide song. And I saw that as a window to add something that is mine, and make it different, while still paying homage to Jimi.”
