Prince EP To Be Released On Anniversary of His Death
New Prince music is scheduled to be released. This week, a press release revealed that a new EP called “Deliverance,” will be released on Friday, the first anniversary of the artist’s death. Reportedly, the EP will feature three previously unreleased songs dating from 2006-2008, along with the title track being an eight-minute multi-part “Man Opera” containing four titles, and an extended version of one of those titles, “I Am”. Paisley Park engineer Ian Boxill stated,
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 EP will be released by an independent, Christian label called the Rogue Music Alliance. Listen to the ‘Deliverance’ track below.
