"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,” Ian Boxill, who co-wrote and produced all of the songs on the EP with Prince, said in a statement. “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. When considering how to release this important work, we decided to go independent because that's what Prince would have wanted.”

RMA is an independent group that, according to the release, “operates as a hub of label-esque services partnering with artists to form their own micro label.”

The “Deliverance” EP can be pre-ordered on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon. It will be released in physical form June 2.
