The songs on ‘Deliverance’ were written and produced by both Prince and Ian Boxill. In the year following the death of Prince, Ian Boxill completed the tracks and has 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.”
Ian also spoke about why the record is being released independently, saying: “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.”
‘Deliverance’ is being released digitally on April 21st and physically on June 2nd
