Surprise Prince EP Deliverance to be released one year after death
A posthumous EP from Prince will be released a year after the music legend's sudden death.
Deliverance is out April 21 and the title track is available to pre-order from digital retailer while it's available to stream on Apple Music.
Rolling Stone reports that Prince co-wrote and co-produced the six songs (the others are Touch Me, I Am, Sunrise Sunset, No One Else and Man Opera as well as an extended version of I Am) with Ian Boxill between 2006 and 2008.
Boxill completed the songs in the wake of the singer's death. He said in a statement, "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 is being released via indie label RMA.
The singer died on April 21 last year from an overdose of fentanyl.
