Hear Prince’s Scorching New Song ‘Deliverance’

Prince unleashes fervent guitar and vocal performance on “Deliverance,” the title-track from a new posthumous EP out April 21st. Deliverance is available to pre-order through digital retailers, while the song can be streamed on Apple Music.

“Deliverance” opens with fierce blues riff before settling into a steady gospel-tinged groove that builds with an increasingly bombastic mix of guitar, organ and back-up vocals. Prince’s vocals are nimble but charged – “You can ease the pain of a few but until God intervenes/ Ain’t nothing, nothing man can do/ Except cause each other injury/ Somebody say, ‘Katrina levees'” – while the musician also unleashes a quintessentially roaring guitar solo.

Prince co-wrote and co-produced the six Deliverance songs with frequent collaborator Ian Boxill between 2006 and 2008. Boxill completed and mixed the songs after Prince’s death last year. Along with the title song, the EP includes a four-movement medley titled “Man Opera” that comprises the tracks “I Am,” “Touch Me,” “Sunrise Sunset” and “No One Else.” The EP closes with an extended version of “I Am.”

The six Deliverance tracks were also written while Prince was working as an independent artist and fittingly the EP will be released via the Vancouver-based indie label, RMA. In a statement, Boxill said, “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.”

News of Deliverance arrives after search warrants for the singer’s Paisley Park compound were unsealed Monday, providing some insight into the musician’s death from an accidental overdose of the painkiller Fentanyl at age 57. The warrants uncovered controlled substances – primarily painkillers that required a doctor’s prescription – hidden throughout the compound.

Prince Deliverance Track List
1. “Deliverance”
2. “I Am”
3. “Touch Me”
4. “Sunrise Sunset”
5. “No One Else”
6. “I Am” (extended)

Pioneering Rap DJs Stretch and Bobbito Detail New NPR Show

Pioneering New York City hip-hop radio DJs Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia will return with a new NPR podcast this summer. The pair – real names Adrian Bartos and Robert Garcia – teased the new show with a trailer featuring snippets of an interview with El-P from Run the Jewels.

In the clip, Stretch and Bobbito recount their Nineties rise, during which their show on Columbia University’s WKCR became a proving ground and launching pad for MCs like Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Eminem and Busta Rhymes. As El-P says of Stretch and Bobbito’s show, “We looked up to you guys as the most important thing you could possibly do. For rap music, you weren’t ish until that moment.”

While Stretch and Bobbito will continue to discuss and cover hip-hop and music on their new podcast, the pair will also tackle art, politics, sports and more. “It’s a crazy journey we’ve taken from doing a radio show on a radio station in 1990 with a console from the Sixties that had dustballs in it,” Stretch says, before Bobbito adds, “And now NPR.”

A premiere date for Stretch and Bobbito’s NPR podcast has yet to be announced. The show follows a limited-run series the pair produced for Samsung 837 last year.

In 2015, Stretch and Bobbito were the subjects of a documentary, Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives. The duo’s massive archive of shows from the Nineties is also available to peruse on Mixcloud.

See Jack White, Elton John Recreate Early American Recording Sessions

Jack White, Elton John, Nas, Taj Mahal and more will explore and recreate one of the most pivotal moments in American music history in the new three-part documentary, American Epic, and the feature-length film, The American Epic Sessions. American Epic premiered at Sundance and will air on PBS May 16th, 23rd and 30th, while The American Epic Sessions will air June 6th on PBS. A massive American Epic Sessions soundtrack will arrive May 12th via Third Man Records, Legacy Recordings and Columbia.

American Epic will chronicle a period of monumental change for the music industry. As director Bernard MacMahon explains in the trailer, in the Twenties, record companies feared that radio was about to become the dominant player in the music industry, so they ventured across the country with the first electrical recording rig in search of new artists and markets. While none of these machines survived, audio engineer Nicholas Bergh managed to reassemble one from its original parts, and his rig was used to record all the music for the accompanying film, The American Epic Sessions.

“Some of the people who were just incredible heroes of mine first recorded on those machines in the Twenties,” Taj Mahal says in the trailer. “To be to go all the way back and come through this portal again, in this lifetime, is phenomenal!”

White and producer T. Bone Burnett helmed The American Epic Sessions which will feature performances from the Alabama Shakes, Beck, Avett Brothers, Los Lobos, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Steve Martin, Edie Brickell, Rhiannon Giddens, Raphael Saadiq and more. The 100-song soundtrack will boast a mix of these new recordings, as well as archival recordings from the Twenties and Thirties.

An American Epic companion book will be published May 2nd via Touchstone. In the book, MacMahon and producer Allison McGourty will offer a behind-the-scenes account of their travels as they searched for long-lost recordings and people who witnessed these early sessions. The book will include unseen photographs and artwork, as well as contributions from Taj Mahal, Nas, Willie Nelson and more.
