Peach is the twelfth track (first of two new tracks) on Prince's compilation album The Hits 2 (which is also included as the second disc of The Hits / The B-Sides), and, three weeks after the album's release, Peach was released in the UK as the album's first single (Pink Cashmere had been released prior to this in North America). A North American release of Peach followed two months after the album's release. In 2002, a live version of Peach was released on One Nite Alone... The Aftershow: It Ain't Over!.

Initial tracking took place between 14-25 June 1992 at Olympic Studios, London, during the Diamonds And Pearls Tour dates in London. The song loops a sampled moan by actress Kim Basinger from The Scandalous Sex Suite. The live version played in 1993 added a guitar and drum coda following the song's ending - this coda was used for the song Chaos And Disorder in October 1993; only performances containing the coda after that date are considered here to include musical portions from Chaos And Disorder, therefore.
