Days Of Wild is a live single recorded on 18 June 2002 at the Centre Molson - Hémicycle in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on the One Nite Alone... Tour. It was initially given to attendees at the final night of the Xenophobia Celebration as a one-track CD single, only nine days after the recording was made, before later becoming available to purchase online and at shows as a three-track single, including a live version of 1+1+1 Is 3 (as "1+1+1=3") and two edits of the Days Of Wild recording.
The title track had previously been available in a different live form on the Crystal Ball album, so this single is often referred to, for clarity’s sake, as Days Of Wild (Live In Montreal), but its actual title is simply Days Of Wild.
The audio was recorded directly from the mix console of Prince’s long time sound engineer, Scottie Baldwin.
Although recorded on the One Nite Alone... Tour, the title track was not included on the One Nite Alone... Live! album. The live version of 1+1+1=3 from 6 April 2002, however, was, albeit in slightly longer form (and correctly titled 1+1+1 Is 3).
Of note is that the single is credited to Prince and the New Power Generation (shortened to Prince & The NPG) - the first time a single has been co-credited to the band since 1993’s The Morning Papers.
Receiving only a limited release, the single was not eligible for the charts.
