Previously unheard tracks will form a new EP titled Deliverance.

The brand new Prince music will be released later this week to mark the first anniversary of his death, which happened on his Paisley Park estate on 21 April, 2016.

The release will be led with title track Deliverance, with a handful of fresh material to be made available from his secret vault by his estate.

Prince co-wrote and co-produced the tracks with Ian Boxill, whose previous credits include Janet Jackson and 2Pac.

“The songs were written and recorded when Prince was an independent artist, protesting what he saw as an unjust music industry,” a statement read.

Boxill added: “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.”

The new tracks included on Deliverance are said to have been recorded between 2006 and 2008.
