UPDATE: Looks like Prince is still winning even a year after his death. Turns out the first posthumous EP from the artist, Deliverance, will NOT be released as Prince’s estate has successfully gotten a judge to block the release on streaming services.
One year after Prince‘s transcendence we are blessed with not only a new single from the Purple One, but an entire posthumous album, both which are titled Deliverance.
Just as we were about to reserve our funds for the new project, TMZ reported that Prince’s estate is suing producer, George Ian Boxhill for gearing to release the six-track EP without their permission.
And now the dilemma: On one end we feel slightly guilty for getting these gems from Prince’s hefty vault (we all know Prince didn’t play about his music), however we could also use a bit of deliverance in these dark, dark times (see: Trump presidency). Prince would understand, right?
According to sources, the six track extended play is set to drop Friday, April 21st and will be available for $3.99:
