Prince’s estate and Paisley Park Enterprises is suing a former sound engineer who’s trying to sell unpublished tracks from the late music icon. The estate claims that George Ian Boxill, who engineered five tracks back in 2006, has no right to publish and gain any profits from the material.

According to a 2004 confidentiality agreement, Boxill agreed that all recordings would remain sole and exclusive property of Prince. On the tracks, Prince is heard singing and playing the keyboard and guitar. Each of the records and one called “Deliverance,” are worth about $75,000, as stated in court documents.

Attorneys for Boxill didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The estate is demanding that Boxill return the tracks.

Prince passed away on April 21 from an overdose.
