The track is now available on iTunes and Apple music. The song is a part of a special six-song EP named 'Deliverance,' which will be releasing this Friday. According to the press release, all the six songs were recorded between 2006 and 2008, when the 'When Doves Cry' hit-maker was an independent artist. Ian Boxill, who has co-written and co-produced all the Prince tracks beginning in 2006 believes that 'Deliverance' is a "timely release". "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," said Boxill. Adding, "When considering how to release this important work, we decided to go independent because that's what Prince would have wanted." Prince, regarded as one of the groundbreaking artists in music history. The 8-time Grammy award-winning artist was found dead at his Paisley Park compound and it was revealed that the singer died of an accidental overdose. The anniversary comes just a few weeks after Prince's sister Tyka Nelson appeared on the ABC special, 'People Icons: Gone Too Soon' and during the interview she revealed that the 'Little Red Corvette' singer predicted his death.
