Prince fans left flowers, candles and balloons outside the late musician's Paisley Park studio complex in Chanhassen, Minnesota on Friday, the first anniversary of his death.

Fans also took photographs outside the Minneapolis nightclub where the Prince film "Purple Rain" was filmed, posing next to a star on a wall bearing the Grammy Award winner's name.An EP of previously unreleased Prince music was scheduled to be released on Friday, but the release was blocked by a US judge.

The EP would have marked the first in a series of planned posthumous releases of material by Prince from the huge vault of discarded or unfinished material he reportedly left behind after his death.



Prince died at age 57 of an overdose of the painkiller fentanyl.

The value of his musical legacy, including a cache of unreleased recordings, has been estimated by some to exceed $500 million when factoring in future royalties, retail sales and commercial rights.
