The EP’s title track, ‘Deliverance’, is available now for listeners in the US. A surprise new Prince EP will be released this Friday to mark the one-year anniversary of his death.
The six-song EP features “New, undiscovered studio recordings” that Prince cut between 2006 and 2008, a press release says.
Boxill said in the release: “I believe ‘Deliverance’ is a timely release with everything going on in the world today, and in light of the one-year anniversary of his passing. I hope when people hear Prince singing these songs it will bring comfort to many.”
“Prince once told me that he would go to bed every night thinking of ways to bypass major labels and get his music directly to the public. When considering how to release this important work, we decided to go independent because that’s what Prince would have wanted.”
The ‘Deliverance EP’ will be followed by two new albums of posthumous songs from the Paisley Park vaults being released by Warner Bros.
