Prince New Music Drops Ahead of Anniversary!

Prince is back! Six brand new songs are about to drop on iTunes, but the question is ... how long will they be there?

A Prince EP titled, "Deliverance" just popped up on iTunes listings. It features 6 tracks, including the title song ... which you can already preview.

You can pre-order the EP for a mere $3.99 but, other than the title track, the songs won't be available until April 21 -- the 1 year anniversary of Prince's death.

It's unclear if the Estate has approved the release. If you've got iTunes, CLICK HERE to get a taste ... while you can.

According to Spin ... the songs were all recorded between 2006 and 2008 and were co-produced by Prince and Ian Boxill.  

A media release says the EP is being released on the independent label RMA (Rogue Music Alliance) and the "majority of sales of Deliverance will benefit Prince's estate."
