Summary: The estate has now stopped the release of the album, which was planned to happen on Friday, Prince's first death anniversary.
The Minnesota district court issued a temporary injunction barring the release of the six-song EP Deliverance after Prince's estate argued that the recordings breached a confidentiality agreement between Prince and his former sound engineer. The estate has now stopped the release of the album, which was planned to happen on Friday, Prince's first death anniversary.TMZ.com reports that the documents procured by them state that producer George Ian Boxill, who put together Deliverance, has no rights to distribute the music to the public. The ruling also forced Boxill to immediately deliver all of the recordings to the estate.
The estate's lawsuit said Boxill signed a 2004 confidentiality agreement that the recordings would remain Prince's sole property.

Prince died at age 57 of an overdose of the painkiller fentanyl.
Additionally, the order directs Boxill to turn over "all of the recordings acquired through his work with Paisley Park Enterprises, including original recordings, analog and digital copies, and any derivative works".
"I hope when people hear Prince singing these songs it will bring comfort to many", Boxill said in a press release published Tuesday by Rogue Music Alliance, through which he meant to release the music.
The title track Deliverance was removed from music streaming services late on Wednesday but not before reaching the No 1 spot on the iTunes rock songs charts. The order expires on May 3rd, but a hearing before that date will determine if it will be extended.
