Unreleased track "Player"

I just wanted to get people's thoughts on this song. I first heard in on YouTube after Prince's passing and I really like it. For some reason it makes me sad though. I am guessing this was recorded in the early 1990s.

Player is my guilty pleasure. Would love a quality sounding version. That and Heaven.

Great song
Cant believe my purple psychedelic pimp slap pimp2

And I descend from grace, In arms of undertow
I will take my place, In the great below

It's a classic track about his reflections on settling down. So melodic and cleaver it would have been a sure fire hit....but he probably got bored or fell out with his latest muse so it got tossed into the vault... sad

I quite like it; in the same vein as Red Scarlet, which leaked last year, and Mister Goonight From Planet Earth, both of which I enjoy a lot (although I seem to remember Mister Midnight not being universally loved when it came out lol )

I love it but all my copies have shitty sound quality.

Wonder sometimes what album it could have fit on and maybe that's why Prince never used it. It might have worked on D&P but that's all I can think of as far as working it into a track list. Maybe it might have fit in on Come.

It's still not. I like MG too.

Always loved 'Player' - I can see why it didn't make it to D&P or whatever - if it had it might've ended up way over-produced and it's fine just the way it is.
