Prince’s estate is seeking legal action. The family says the person behind this are trying to exploit one or more songs for his personal gain at expense of the Prince estate”
Prince‘s estate have filed a lawsuit over a surprise new EP of unreleased music from the singer that is set to be released this Friday (April 21) to mark the one-year anniversary of his death.
The six-song ‘Deliverance’ EP features “new, undiscovered studio recordings” that Prince cut between 2006 and 2008. It features a four-movement medley called ‘Man Opera’ which contains the songs ‘I Am’, ‘Touch Me’, ‘Sunrise Sunset’ and ‘No One Else’, and is rounded off by an extended version of ‘I Am’.
Prince co-wrote and co-produced the EP’s songs with Ian Boxill, who completed the tracks following his death last year. Local reports now state that both Paisley Park and Prince’s estate have filed a joint lawsuit against Boxill, accusing him of “trying to exploit one or more songs for his personal gain at expense of the Prince estate”.
The lawsuit argues that Boxill signed a confidentiality agreement with the late star that stated that all music they worked on “would remain Prince’s sole and exclusive property.”
