Gett Off was the first single to be released from the album Diamonds And Pearls, by Prince and the New Power Generation, released worldwide. It was the first musical release to be credited to Prince and the New Power Generation (the first time Prince had given his band co-credit since the disbanding of The Revolution in 1986).
Initially released to DJs as a promo on Prince’s 33rd birthday, 7 June 1991, there was no plan to release the single commercially (or to include the track on the album Diamonds And Pearls), and only 1,500 copies of the one-sided 12" promo were made (included here for the sake of clarity).
Based on the positive reaction, however, it was decided that Gett Off would be included on the album and released as the lead-off single.
The track it replaced on the album, Horny Pony, became the b-side of the single. The maxi-single released included three tracks which are largely based on Gett Off, but can be considered songs in their own right: Violet The Organ Grinder, Gangster Glam and Clockin’ The Jizz (Instrumental), as well as a slew of remixes by Prince and other remixers (some of which were given different names in different countries - see Gett Off song entry for details).
