Cape Horn is the fifth track on Eric Leeds’ first album Times Squared (on the CD release, fourth track on other formats). The track was written by Prince and produced by Prince and Eric Leeds.

Basic tracking took place on 26 June 1988, during a one-day session between Prince, Sheila E. and Eric Leeds for a projected album by Madhouse (during the same session as Uno, Dos and Tres); the track had no known title at the time. In August and September 1989, Prince asked Eric Leeds to compile tracks from the vault for a third Madhouse album.

This track was one of ten selected and, in keeping with previous Madhouse releases, tracks were given tentative numerical titles of 17 to 26 (the album would be titled 26) - this track was given the title of 20 as the fourth track on the album at the time. When Prince suggested the album should be released as a solo album by Eric Leeds, Leeds came up with titles for each track, in Spring 1990; this track became known as Cape Horn and the album became known as Times Squared.
