An EP Of Unreleased Prince Music Set To Drop This Week!

With the anniversary of Prince's death looming, fans of the late music legend can look forward to a whole new EP of the star's unreleased musis...and it's dropping this week!

 

Entitled 'Deliverance', the six-track EP will include tracks recorded by the 'Purple Rain' entertainer between 2006 and 2008, due to be released to the public this Friday marking the one-year anniversary of his death.

 

 

The project is reportedly co-written and co-produced by Ian Boxill who worked on the tracks with Prince before he died, and completed them before his untimely death on the 21st April last year.

 

"The songs were written and recorded when Prince was an independent artist, protesting what he saw as an unjust music industry," The press release from Rogue Music Alliance reads, "In the spirit of that independence, and in supporting Prince's opinion of major label contracts, Deliverance is being released independently via RMA."

 

 

The record company widely known for it's Christian music output, have announced that majority of the profit made from the EP will go towards Prince's estate. However yesterday (Tuesday) it was reported that Paisley Park and the singer’s estate were suing Boxill over five unpublished Prince songs, including the EP's titled track 'Deliverance.'

 

'Deliverance' is available to pre-order from iTunes now HERE.

 

According to www.princerogersnelson.com , the EP may not be available to UK fans as it will only be released in the United States due to 'Licensing laws'.
