*Prince’s estate has put a stop to the planned release of “Deliverance” following a court ruling in its favor.
According to TMZ, a federal judge granted the estate’s request Wednesday for a restraining order, which prevents the EP from being released on Friday, the first anniversary of Prince’s death.
According to docs, obtained by TMZ, the court said it appears George Ian Boxill, the producer who put together “Deliverance” has no right to distribute the music to the public. The judge referenced a confidentiality agreement purportedly signed by Boxill when recording with Prince in 2006.
Boxill was ordered to turn over all recordings to the estate.
The restraining order will expire on May 3, unless the court extends it. There will be a hearing before then to address the matter.
