June is the eleventh and final track on Prince’s 38th album Hitnrun Phase One.
While specific recording dates are not known, a BBC interview with Joshua Welton seemed to confirm that Hardrocklover and June were recorded on the same day in late June 2015, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. When discussing Hardrocklover, Welton is quoted as saying:
- Hardrocklover was done literally almost as soon as it came out. Actually, that and the last song on the album were made literally in the same hour.
In the lyrics, Prince states "[I] sometimes feel like I was born much too late; should have been born on the Woodstock stage." Prince was born in 1958, however, and was 11 years old at the time of the era-defining Woodstock Festival.
