Adonis & Bathsheba is an unreleased track recorded on 27 July 1986 at Prince's Galpin Blvd Home Studio (the day after The Ball, three days before the release of a 12" single of Anotherloverholenyohead).

Prince had just completed the final version of the Dream Factory album, and it is unknown if this song was intended for any project at the time, but during Prince: A Celebration in June 2000, computer screens at Paisley Park Studios offered names of a selection of tracks which users could vote on for inclusion on Crystal Ball Volume II, and while Adonis & Bathsheba was chosen by fans, the project was ultimately abandoned.

At some point in the early-to-mid 1990s, European music group Edel (who distributed many NPG Records released in Europe) created artwork for a single using the title Adonis & Bathsheba, but this is believed to have been a demonstration rather than something planned for release (the other track titles used, Little Queen (India Mix) and Use Me, are not thought to be from existing tracks).
