ONE YEAR ON: Prince
TO MARK the one-year anniversary of Prince’s death, a surprise new EP from the late singer will be released this Friday (April 21).
The six-song EP features “new, undiscovered studio recordings” that Prince recorded between 2006 and 2008, a press release says. The EP is called ‘Deliverance’ and its title track is available now on Apple Music and iTunes – however, it is currently only available in the US because of licensing laws.
Prince co-wrote and co-produced the EP’s songs with Ian Boxill, who finished the tracks following his death in 2016. In the press release, Boxill said: “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.”

The EP will be released digitally worldwide on April 21, and will get a physical release on June 2.
