Prince's Deliverance Will Not Be Released Tomorrow as Estate Gets Restraining Order

DeliverancePrince’s estate has put the brakes on the planned anniversary release of a new album after a court ruled in its favor. A federal judge granted the estate’s request for a restraining order, meaning that “Deliverance” will not be released tomorrow on the anniversary of Prince’s death. The original producer, George Ian Boxill, who put together the extended play, does not have a right to publicly distribute the music, possibly due to a confidentiality agreement signed back in 2006. Boxill was further ordered to turn over all recordings to the estate. The order, however, did not address the millions of unlucky Prince fans who pre-ordered the album.
