"Prince co-wrote and co-produced the songs with his mixing and recording engineer from 2004–2009, Ian Boxill. Boxill spent the past year after Prince's passing completing the compositions and arrangements, finishing the production and mixing the songs."

Highly suspicious.

In other words... WTF is this?!??

Some of these songs sound chopped off and unfinished. I don't know why they would release unfinished songs. Deliverance is fully fledged. I know there's more than this...

Awesome track. Feels good especially after all the ugliness from the release of the warrants.

Artistically and spiritually awesome track. I'm glad we all get to hear it. It's a little bit of healing up in hear.

Hope it's not taken down and whomever sicked the lawyers should put them back in their pen.

It's good and we need it out there.

Fuck the family and their lawyers on this one. Like someone said, His folks have been placing his music on spotify against his wishes. They don't give two shits about his 'rights'...and besides 'artists rights' only apply to the artists (not their mooching "families"). I am glad his stuff is on spotify but his music eventually needs to be public domain.

As long as this dude is honest about Prince' s and his contributions and agrees not to exploit the music in disrespectful ways, his estate needs to back off. Regardless of this guy's motives, this song has the right spirit of reverence for Prince-- unlike tacky, disrespectful urns, over-expensive celebrations', yet another WB greatest hits release, support of a badly timed memoir, cryptic statements about knowing Prince was going to die two years ago, and keeping his possible enabler/dealer as a full time employee.

BTW, Prince's singing is worth it in this song. The other dude could have done most of the song, and I would still want to hear it..

Its an end times type of a song but its non-demoninational and universal enough to be relatable. I like the song.

Is information known about the musicians that played on the songs of this EP? The strings on some songs I presume to be Claire Fischer and his rhythm section to be CC Dunham and Joshua Dunham.

Agreed.
This track is the best celebration and tribute to Prince so far. Fittingly, it is by the man himself.

Fits the closure like nothing else so far.

The EP has leaked, all songs. This is one time I'd actually advocate downloading the music, just so this asshole doesn't get a dime of money. Because why pay for something you get for free - at least in this case.

True, this is different from the PR Deluxe where I would buy that in a heartbeak. Seems like some shady ethics going on even right down to the fake dancing Prince in the video

I'm very interested in unreleased songs from this era, but I absolutely will not pay for songs that have been "completed" (beyond fixing up the sound) by anyone else after Prince's death. disbelief Put up the untouched tracks, and I'll happily pay whoever puts it out.

Sad that this is the best thing that has been released since his passing. Really sad. The man left a vault full of treasures and we got nothing after a full year.

Put the blame where it is supposed to be: Prince. He left the mess.

I'm surprised no one is mentioning what, to me, is the obvious elephant in the room: that Prince would absolutely despise the idea of people finishing unreleased tracks of his and releasing them without his final approval. Surprised he didn't do anything to make sure that wouldn't happen, but, then again, he didn't make many preparations for his death at all, it would seem. I think death was a topic he avoided, and kept putting it off until it was too late.

Still, the arrangement was tasteful and the song was very good. I like it more than most tracks from that period. Hopefully, if they feel they have to "finish" more incomplete tracks, they'll stick to similarly tasteful arrangements.

I really hope we won't see anything like Thriller 2.0 with will.i.am or Timbaland mixes. Still, bizarre to see tracks from this era as the first to release. Can't we get something from his golden period?

Anyone know where the leaked tracks are? Don't want to give a dime to this slime but would love to hear something new from our dearly departed Princey.
