The Prince producer behind the late artist’s new “Deliverance ” EP has reportedly been hit with a lawsuit.
According to a report, court docs note that Ian Boxill, Prince’s longtime engineer, possesses five unpublished Prince tracks recorded in 2006.
The docs state that one of the tracks, include “Deliverance,” and that Boxill is ‘now trying to exploit one or more songs for his personal gain at the expense of the Prince estate’.
The suit claims the recordings are worth more than $75,000 and that Boxill had violated an agreement with Prince that stated all recordings he worked on with the artist would remain Prince’s “sole and exclusive” property and that Boxill would not use them “in any way whatsoever.”
As previously reported, Prince’s “Deliverance” EP, will be released on Friday, the one year anniversary of his death. The EP contains three previously unreleased songs dating from 2006-2008. Prince’s estate has yet to comment.
