Gold was the second commercial single to be released from Prince's 17th album The Gold Experience, the first album to be credited to SymbolSmallerBlue.png. It was released two months after the album, and was released worldwide.

The previously-unreleased b-side, Rock 'N' Roll Is Alive! (And It Lives In Minneapolis), received some press coverage as it was hastily-written and recorded as a response to Lenny Kravitz's hit song Rock And Roll Is Dead.

The single reached only number 88 on the US Billboard Pop Chart, and number 92 on the Billboard R&B Chart. The single fared much better in the UK, where it reached number 10 on the Gallup Top 40 Singles Chart.
