How do you make a movie about the life of Jimi Hendrix when you don’t have any of the rights to his music? We’re about to find out.

The first trailer has been released for All Is By My Side, a film about Hendrix written by 12 Years a Slave scribe John Ridley. The movie stars Andre 3000 as Hendrix, and seems to focus equally on his love life with Imogen Poots and Hayley Atwell as it does his musical career. The film also looks at Hendrix before he was famous, a further attempt to deemphasize the importance of the music itself.

You can check out the first trailer above, and catch the movie when it is released on September 26.
