The Morning Papers is the fourth track on Prince's 14th album SymbolSmallerBlue.png, the second to be credited to Prince and the New Power Generation, and, four and a half months after the album's release (five and a half months in North America), The Morning Papers was released as the album's fifth and final single.

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in early December 1991, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions that produced Sexy M.F., Love 2 The 9's, The Sacrifice Of Victor, Arrogance, and And God Created Woman). It was included as the third track on early configurations of the SymbolSmallerBlue.png album, until Prince later added the track My Name Is Prince, recorded a few months previously. It was included as the sixth track (fourth song) on the March 1992 and Summer, 1992 configurations of the SymbolSmallerBlue.png album, before many of the album's segues were removed for release. It was also included as the b-side on a planned single of Love 2 The 9's in Spring, 1993, shortly before the release of The Morning Papers as a single.
