Prince single ‘Deliverance’ disappears from Apple Music

Only hours after Prince’s “Deliverance” went live on Apple Music, the track now appears to have been pulled from not only Apple Music, but several other streaming services as well, AppleInsider reports. The single track debuted early yesterday morning as the title track to Prince’s upcoming album, scheduled to be released on Friday, but later disappeared for unknown reasons. Reports speculate that the removal was likely in response to a contractual dispute between Prince’s estate and sound engineer George Ian Boxill, who co-wrote and co-produced all of the tracks, as to the rights to publish the album independently. There appears to be no judicial order for the removal, suggesting that the retraction was taken as a precautionary measure.
