Judge Blocks Release of More Prince Music


A posthumous EP from Prince called “Deliverance” was expected to drop, but a Minnesota judge has blocked the release of further Prince music due to a legal dispute between Prince’s estate and the sound engineer who distributed it.

Cowriter and coproducer of the songs, George Ian Boxill, announced the release of the music shortly before the one-year anniversary of Prince’s death. Once the titular track was released for streaming, Prince’s estate and Paisley Park filed a lawsuit against Boxill for violating a confidentiality agreement and for unauthorized sale of music.

The judge issued a temporary restraining order in the estate’s favor and also ruled that Boxill must deliver the new music and any other recordings made with Prince to the estate.
