Planet Earth is the first track from Prince's 32nd album Planet Earth. While an exact recording dates is not known, basic tracking took place in November 2004, during a three-and-a-half hour session with Michael B. on drums and Sonny T. on bass at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota that also yielded 3121, From The Lotus..., ...Back 2 The Lotus, Colonized Mind, Love Like Jazz, Wall Of Berlin, Guitar and a song titled Shameless as well as two or three others.
A tape photographed in Prince's vault at Paisley Park Studios lists Wall Of Berlin as 19 November 2004, which alludes this is the exact date for all of the songs in this sessions.
In an August 2006 interview, Michael B. said [they recorded] eleven or twelve tracks in three and a half hours that night. And a different occasion he has later indicated that this was the last recording sessions they did with Prince for a while after that. Background vocal overdubs were subsequently done in 2007.
The album credits do not indicate who else played on the track.
