01. "Free Urself" (28 September 2015 - Tidal stream).
Free Urself (stylized as FREE URSELF) is a track made available on streaming music service Tidal as part of its Purple Pick of the Week series of "new tracks, exclusives, rarities and more from the vault, curated personally by Prince". The track was the fourth offering in the series, and the first previously-unreleased track with Prince as the credited artist.

The artwork used with the track had been previously shown (with the words "Free Urself") in three teaser videos for the track Stare four months earlier. All three teaser videos consisted of a excerpt of Stare, over text and images stating "new funk" by Prince would be coming in Summer 2015.

It has been speculated that Free Urself is the title of an album, but this has not been confirmed.

On 30 September 2015 the song was made available as a stand-alone single on iTunes without prior announcement.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in early 2015 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.

02. "This Could B Us" (28 August 2015 (digital release) ).
This Could B Us is a digital single released on 28 August 2015, as the third single from Prince's 38th album Hitnrun released two weeks later (although only the first single to be released since the album's announcement).

The single version of the song was the same as that first streamed on the Tidal three days earlier; a remix (with additional recording) of the original track which was released the previous year on Art Official Age.


03. "Hardrocklover" (7 July 2015 iTunes release).
Hardrocklover is a digital single released on 7 July 2015 (although iTunes page release date is July 3rd), as the first single from the forthcoming album Hitnrun, although the album was not announced until two weeks later.

The single is currently only available on iTunes.

The single version of the song was the same as that first streamed on the Prince3EG Soundcloud account six days earlier.


04. "Baltimore" ft Eryn Allen Kane (26 May 2015 iTunes release).
Baltimore is a digital single released on 26 May 2015, as a stand-alone Prince single (although the following day the Prince3EG Twitter account teased a new release, possibly titled Free Urself, with a link to the single, indicating that it may be included on an album at a later date). The single was only made available on iTunes. The single version of the song contained additional orchestral and muted trumpet overdubs compared with the version first streamed on the Prince3EG Soundcloud account earlier in the month.


05. "Clouds" ft Lianne La Havas (25 August 2014 - Art Official Age album pre-order download).

Clouds is the second track on Prince's 37th album Art Official Age, and was released five weeks earlier as a pre-order download for the album when it was announced on 25 August 2014 (along with Breakdown, which had previously been released as a single). A Clouds promo CD was also made available in Europe the week before the album.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in Spring or Summer 2014 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. British folk/soul singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas, who appears as a vocalist on the track, gave an interview in late February 2014, in which she stated she had not yet recorded with Prince but would love to, indicating that the track, or at least her portion of the track, had not yet been recorded. La Havas appeared live with Prince in March and July 2014, and it is possible they worked together on the track then (along with Affirmation I & II, Way Back Home and Affirmation III), but this is purely speculative.

A snippet of the track was premiered over the PA prior to a live show, 26 July 2014, Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, along with snippets of several other songs from Art Official Age.

Joshua Welton remixed the track in 2014 or early 2015 but the remix was developed into a distinct track, Mr. Nelson, which was then included on Prince's next album, Hitnrun Phase One.


06. "Breakdown" (18 April 2014 - The Breakdown single).
Breakdown (initially released as The Breakdown) is the third track on Prince's 37th album Art Official Age, and had been released five and a half months earlier as a stand-alone single, where both the song and the single were titled The Breakdown.

After being played live throughout 2013 and Prince announcing it as his favorite current song on his Arsenio Hall Show appearance in March 2014, the song was unexpectedly released a few minutes before midnight on 18 April 2014 several hours after the announcement of a new deal with Warner Bros. Records, though the album Art Official Age was not announced at the time. The song was also included as a download for pre-orders of the album when it was announced on 25 August 2014 (along with Clouds).

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in late 2012 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The track was first heard when DJ Rashida played it prior to Prince's DJ set on 19 January 2013, Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant, Minneapolis, MN, USA. During 3rdEye TV Show # 4 the chat moderator announced that Donna Grantis and Hannah Ford had been recording parts for Breakdown that evening at Paisley Park Studios (Studio C), suggesting new recording on the track took place on 22 June 2013, although the released version seems to be identical to the one first heard in January 2013, indicating that the additional recording was not kept.


07. "Fallinlove2nite" ft Zooey Deschanel (2 February 2014 - New Girl TV broadcast; 13 March 2014 - iHeart Radio stream; 17 March 2014 - Fallinlove2nite single).
Fallinlove2nite is the sixth track on Prince's 38th album Hitnrun Phase One. 18 months earlier, however, a slightly different version was released on the stand-alone digital single Fallinlove2nite (Prince's first on Epic Records) in March 2014. The song was first broadcast (as an edited studio recording) during Prince's appearance on the TV series New Girl, broadcast on 2 February 2014.

The full studio version was premiered (along with Funknroll) in March 2014, on radio station 102.3 KJLH, based in Los Angeles, CA, USA, before being available to stream in full the following week on iHeart Radio's website.

The song was recorded specifically for the New Girl appearance, as vocals are shared between Prince and the show's lead actress Zooey Deschanel (who is also a professional singer, as one half of She & Him). Although the New Girl performance was intended to appear as though the track was being performed live, it was lip-synched over the studio recording.

The version included on Hitnrun Phase One does not contain Deschanel's vocals, and it is likely that it is the full studio version prior to her vocal overdubs, rather than her vocals being removed.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in late 2013 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA (Prince's performance on the show was filmed on two days beginning 12 December 2013).


08. "Pretzelbodylogic" (3 February 2014 - Pretzelbodylogic single).
Pretzelbodylogic is the second track on Prince's 36th album Plectrumelectrum (the first by Prince and 3rdEyeGirl). Almost eight months earlier, however, it was released on the stand-alone single Pretzelbodylogic. A few days prior (on 28 January 2014), a 28-second audio clip was streamed on the 3rdEyeGirl YouTube account. The track was announced by Hannah Welton-Ford on her Facebook account as the first single from the PlectrumElectrum album, although Fixurlifeup had been released ten months earlier.

In October 2015, a remix of the track, titled Pretzelbodylogic Reloaded, was made available as Tidal's streaming Purple Pick of the Week. Two months later, on 3 December 2015, Tidal opened a download store which included Pretzelbodylogic Reloaded among many other previously-streamed tracks by Prince (including Stare, Stones (by The Golden Hippie), and If Eye Could Get Ur Attention along with the updated version of the album The Chocolate Invasion).

While specific recording details are not known, it is likely that initial tracking took place in late 2013 or early 2014 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.


09. "Breakfast Can Wait" (5 February 2013 - 3rdEyeGirl.com website).
Breakfast Can Wait is the sixth track on Prince's 37th album Art Official Age, but it was first available for download 18 months earlier from Prince's 3rdEyeGirl.com website on the day the site opened (along with two versions of Screwdriver and a remix of Rock And Roll Love Affair).

Six months later, on 17 August 2013, the track was re-released on 3rdEyeTunes.com with artwork showing of comedian Dave Chappelle dressed as Prince and serving pancakes, from a 2004 sketch from an episode of Chappelle's Show.

On 3 September 2013, Kobalt released the Breakfast Can Wait single with the same artwork on iTunes and Amazon. The following month, a digital maxi-single titled The Breakfast Experience was released, containing new remixes of the track by Joshua Welton. At the time the single was not announced as being connected to any album or larger project, and it is likely that the publicity generated by the track, and more specifically its artwork, led to its inclusion on Art Official Age.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in late 2012 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.


10. "Fixurlifeup" (12 April 2013 - CBC Radio broadcast; 16 May 2013 - Fixurlifeup single).
Fixurlifeup is the sixth track on Prince's 36th album Plectrumelectrum (the first by Prince and 3rdEyeGirl). 16 months earlier, however, Fixurlifeup was released on the debut digital single by "3rdEyeGirl feat. Prince" in May 2013, following the majority of dates on the Live Out Loud Tour (with the credit later revised to "Prince and 3rdEyeGirl").

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in early 2013 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.
The track was first broadcast on 12 April 2013, on Toronto (Canada) radio station CBC Radio's show Q with Jian Ghomeshi, to promote the opening dates of the Live Out Loud Tour, which began in Vancouver three days later. The premiere was announced on Jian Ghomeshi's Twitter account the previous night with the tweet:  "Just (finally) confirmed: We've got world premiere of the new #Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL song, #FIXURLIFEUP, tmrw morn on #Q. We like."


11. "Screwdriver" (4 February 2013 (digital release) ).
Screwdriver is a stand-alone released on swiss label Purple Music on 4 February 2013. Screwdriver was included on Prince's 39th studio album Hitnrun Phase Two when it was released in December 2015, but this project is believed to have come later. In retrospect, however, Screwdriver can be considered the album's third single.

The single contains only the main studio version of the track.

The single's video was premiered at the launch of Prince's official website 20pr1nc3.com on 22 January 2013. Purple Music announced on their Facebook page on 25 January 2013 that they would be servicing Prince's song Screwdriver to radio stations.


12. "Rock and Roll Love Affair" (22 November 2012 (Europe) ).
Rock And Roll Love Affair is a stand-alone single released on swiss label Purple Music on 22 November 2012 (after initially being announced for 2 November, then 16 November 2012). It is announced available for retailers on 26 November 2012.

The single was premiered on 17 September 2012 on US radio iHeartRadio.com (at the same time as Prince's appearance on US talk show The View). It was announced as rotating on European radios from 12 October 2012 onwards.

Rock And Roll Love Affair has been released sor far under CD and 12" vinyl (regular and picture) formats. The digital release is still pending. At the time of writing it is not known if this is intended to tie-in with any larger studio project, or will remain as a stand-alone single.

Aided by top-of-the-hour promotional airplay on participating Clear Channel and Media Entertainment-owned stations in the USA on 17 September 2012, the single entered the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart on 6 October 2012 at position 22.


13. "Extraloveable" ft Andy Allo (23 November 2011 (Canada); 24 November 2011 (Europe, Australia, New Zealand & Japan); 28 November 2011 (USA) ).
Extraloveable was a stand-alone digital single released on iTunes in Canada only in late November 2011, to promote the Welcome 2 Canada Tour beginning two days later. It was made available in on iTunes platform in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan one day after the initial release in Canada, and in the USA the following week.

The digital release contains a 2011 re-recording of the previously-unreleased 1982 track Extraloveable. At the time of writing it is not known if this is intended to tie-in with any larger studio project, or will remain as a stand-alone single.

This single has not entered the iTunes singles chart at the time of writing.


14. "Dance 4 Me" (24 March 2009 - MPLSound album download).
Dance 4 Me is the third track on Prince's 34th studio album MPLSound, and, five months after the album's release (one week before the French release), Dance 4 Me was released as the album's first single, available only as a download in France. A month later, Dance 4 Me (Icon Remix) was released as the album's first single in North America, available as a download only. Other dance remixes have been created by outside producers for potential release.

In December 2011, close to three years after the album's release, Swiss dance music label Purple Music released a new single of Dance 4 Me, containing remixes of the track by Jamie Lewis and David Alexander, as well as the remixes recorded for potential release in 2009.

Recording dates and studio are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in 2008 - early 2009 at either Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA or 77 Beverly Park, Hollywood, CA, USA. Remixes were done in mid-2009 at unknown studios. Jamie Lewis recorded a remix in mid-to-late 2011 at an unknown studio.


15. "F.U.N.K." (8 November 2007 - Princefansunited.com audio stream (as PFUnk); 20 November 2007 - F.U.N.K. download single).
F.U.N.K. was originally streamed on PrinceFansUnited.com (also known as "PFU") as PFUnk, within two days of the site's opening, as a 'gift' from Prince in response to the site's criticism of Prince's approach towards fan websites. Prince was said to have written and recorded the track directly in response to the criticism, and offered it to PrinceFansUnited.com as a response, but in fact he only wrote updated lyrics and re-recorded an existing vault track, F.U.N.K.. The following week, it was streamed as the Jam Of The Week on 3121.com using its original title F.U.N.K., and within a few days, F.U.N.K. was available as a stand-alone download single on iTunes. Shelby J. also streamed the track on her MySpace page, along with a brief spoken intro by her (without any known Prince input).

Initial recording dates are unknown, but engineer Jesse Sutcliffe says this song was recorded around the time the Musicology album was conceived which places its initial recording around 2003 or early 2004. It is believed Prince updated the lyrics and re-recorded the track on 7 November 2007, the day before it was sent to PrinceFansUnited.com.


16. "Guitar" (2 February 2007 - 3121.com mp3 download).
Guitar is the second track from Prince's 32nd album Planet Earth, and a week prior to the album's initial release (with the Mail on Sunday newspaper in the UK and Ireland), Guitar was released as the album's first single in Europe. Five and a half months prior to the album's release, however, a completely different version of Guitar (often described as a demo, although not officially labelled as such), was available for purchase as an mp3 download from 3121.com to coincide with Prince's appearance on the Superbowl Half-Time show on 4 February 2007. Additionally, six weeks prior to the album's release, the album version of Guitar was available for download on Verizon Wireless in the USA, and a short promotional clip of Prince and his band performing the song was used in TV advertisements.

In 2011, new bandmember Andy Allo posted on her Facebook page the track Guitar (Acoustic), seemingly a rehearsal take of the track, recorded only with Prince and Allo (complete with Prince giving direction to Allo). Interestingly, the meta-data of the track gives the artist credit as "Prince/Allo", and gives an album title of "The L/C", about which nothing is known. The artwork embedded in the track also gives the credit "Prince/Allo", while the artwork's photo is a picture of Prince lifting up Allo's guitar (see artwork below). The song was also offered as a free download at ThisIsRealMusic.com.

Initial tracking dates are uncertain, but it is believed that the track was recorded in early 2007 at either Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA or at 3121 at The Rio Las Vegas, NV, USA. The initially-released version appears to be a solo production by Prince, while Michael B. has confirmed that both he and Sonny T. appear on the album version (album credits are not split up by track). A recording date for the 2011 rehearsal between Prince and Allo is not known, but assumed to be in July 2011, while on the Welcome 2 America Euro 2011 Tour in Europe.


17. "Fury" (21 March 2006 - 3121 album).
Fury is the eighth track on Prince's 31st studio album 3121, and, three months after the album's release, Fury was released as the album's third single. A live version (in a medley with Te Amo Corazón) was included on the UK edition of the Fury single (in both audio and video formats), featuring former Revolution members Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman.

Exact recording dates for the studio version are unknown, but it was likely recorded at some point in late 2005 or early 2006, at either Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, or 3121 (Mulholland), West Hollywood, CA, USA (it was not included on a late 2005 configuration of 3121, suggesting it may have been recorded after that configuration was compiled).


18. "Black Sweat" (21 February 2006 - Black Sweat download single).

Black Sweat is the fourth track on Prince's 31st studio album 3121, and, a month prior to the album's release, Black Sweat was released (as a download) as the album's second single (a CD single release followed in Europe a week after the album's release).

Specific recording dates are unknown, but the track was likely written in mid-late June 2004, as Prince added it to the acoustic section of the Musicology Live 2004ever tour on 25 June 2004 and played it fairly regularly after that (Prince spent a few days at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, around this time, and it is likely that the track was recorded there). Since the released track is a dance track rather than an acoustic track, it is possible the initial recording was re-worked later on, but information has not been verified. The track was included as the sixth track on a late 2005 configuration of 3121, following on from Incense And Candles before switching places with it while Streets Of Panama was removed from the album before its release.

The live recording of Black Sweat from Prince's final full show (14 April 2016, Fox Theatre, Atlanta, GA, USA) was made available from Tidal on 18 April 2016 as the Purple Pick of the Week, and became the final official release of music by Prince before his death on 21 April 2016.


19. "Te Amo Corazón" (13 December 2005 - Te Amo Corazón single).
Te Amo Corazón is the third track on Prince's 31st studio album 3121, and, three months before the album's release, Te Amo Corazón was released as the album's first single (without a corresponding album mentioned, however). A live version (in a medley with Fury) was included on the UK edition of the Fury single (in both audio and video formats), featuring former Revolution members Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman.

Exact recording dates for the studio version are unknown, but it was likely recorded at some point in 2005 in either Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, or 3121 (Mulholland), West Hollywood, CA, USA, with orchestra recordings by Clare Fischer recorded in Los Angeles, CA, USA. The track was included as the fourth track on a late 2005 configuration of 3121, before Streets Of Panama was removed from the album before its release. Of note is that this is the earliest released studio track to feature Josh Dunham on bass guitar and Cora Coleman-Dunham on drums (although both appeared on a live version of Satisfied released earlier in 2005).


20. "S.S.T." Non-album single. 3 September 2005 - NPG Music Club download.
S.S.T. was first available as a download on the NPG Music Club within 24 hours of its recording in response to Hurricane Katrina's destruction of New Orleans, MO, USA. Two days later, the song was offered as a download bundle with Brand New Orleans and Mavis Staples' You Will Be Moved. Eight weeks later, a CD single of S.S.T. was released.

Initial tracking took place on 2 September 2005 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, as Prince watched footage of Hurricane Katrina's effects on the city of New Orleans while listening to Sade's The Sweetest Taboo (from the 1985 album Promise, also released as a single), which became the acronym used for the song's title ("Sade's Sweetest Taboo").

"S.S.T." is also an acronym for "sea surface temperature", which can be used in forecasting hurricanes. Brand New Orleans, which is based around the final instrumental section of S.S.T., was recorded at the same session.
