The EP was previewed with the release of the title track but when Prince's estate took legal action, the song was removed from digital retailers. However, the label behind the release has been allowed by court order to continue selling the track, but the five other unheard songs have been blocked from release, according to Radio.com.
Matthew Wilson, attorney for RMA, a Vancouver, Washington based independent label responsible for the release, issued a statement today regarding the hearing for a temporary restraining order for the sale of the Prince EP and single.
The Federal Court located in Minnesota has temporarily enjoined the release of the remaining unreleased tracks on the 'Deliverance' EP. The court order has not enjoined the released single 'Deliverance.' Therefore the 'Deliverance' single will continue to be sold. Read morehere.

During this discussion, the singer revealed that she collaborated with Beatles legend John Lennon's son Sean for one song, "Tomorrow Never Came," on her upcoming album.
When she was writing the song, she explained she thought he would be a good fit for him, but didn't want him to think she chose him because the single has a line about his parents, John Lennon and Yoko Ono (and of the course the title resembles that of the Beatles classic, "Tomorrow Never Knows").
"Actually, I had listened to his records over the years and I did think it was his vibe, so I played it for him and he liked it. He rewrote his verse and had extensive notes, down to the mix. And that was the last thing I did, decision-wise," Del Rey said. Read morehere.

Losing Aaron Hatcher, my special needs son, to an alleged abuse by his teachers, led to a song that should have never been written. After suffering a heart attack and having open heart surgery, I didn't want to live. My son Aaron was my all! I told my secrets to him, knowing that he would love me in spite of what I told him. I say this, because he would show his affection to me by touching my head, as if he cared about me regardless of my many mistakes in life.
This song's emotions are telling how I wanted to curse GOD and die, because my only love left me, from an alleged abuse by people we trust. I had to put my Trust in the same GOD who allowed this to happen. I learned it was the teachers who did it, not GOD. That was a hard pill to swallow, but I did it! I'm suffering from it in love. GOD I still TRUST YOU in spite of my pain, and I want the world to know how powerful you are, for allowing me to tell the world and bring awareness to all. I'm able to TRUST as I spread the word of LOVE!
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the Rahnright here!
