Emotional Pump is a track recorded on 16 October 1986 at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California. It was written for (or at least initially offered to) Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, who had influenced Prince greatly (see below for details of her influence). It was sent to her, but she didn’t think it matched her style and she told Prince she couldn’t sing it.

The song was released in September 2020 as the first track of Vault Tracks part 3, one of the discs with previously unreleased tracks included with the Sign O’ The Times Super Deluxe Edition.
