Color, by The Steeles, is the fifth track on the album 1-800 New Funk (a compilation of mostly-unreleased music largely written and produced by Prince/, recorded by other Paisley Park Records artists). The song was written by Prince and produced by Kirk Johnson (as "Kirky J.").

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in late 1992 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The track was intended for a planned project by Minneapolis and the MPLS album (even though lead vocals were by The Steeles), but this project remained unfinished.
