Interlude (in an earlier incarnation known as Wendy) is an unreleased instrumental by Wendy Melvoin recorded in May 1986, at Prince's Galpin Blvd Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
Although the track was written and recorded by Wendy Melvoin without Prince's writing or musical input, it is listed here as a Prince and the Revolution track as it was planned for the Prince and the Revolution album Dream Factory. It was recorded in Prince's home studio, but Wendy Melvoin is the only musician on the track.
The track was included as the ninth track on the first disc of both the 3 June 1986 and 18 July 1986 configuration of the Dream Factory album.
When Prince decided not to proceed with the album after disbanding the Revolution, and concentrated instead on Camille and Crystal Ball (both of which were also aborted), he decided not to include this track, which remains unreleased.
This interlude is not related to the Lisa Coleman-written piece of the same name, Interlude, played during the 1999 Tour and included on the live discs of the 1999 Deluxe release in 2019. See Interlude for details of that track.
