It’s hard to believe megastar musician Prince will have passed away one year ago on Friday, but fans will get another chance to celebrate his music on that day when a new album is released with six previously unreleased songs on it. The album Deliverance will be available on Friday, but the first single, also named Deliverance, is now available on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.
According to the statement, the singles were written between 2006 and 2008 by Prince and Ian Boxill. It was during one of the periods of time when The Purple One was an independent artist. Rogue Music Alliance will release the album, with most of the profits going to Prince’s estate.
Boxill released a statement, where he said that “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.”
