The Marrying Kind is the eighth track on Prince’s 28th studio album Musicology.
Initial recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in 2003 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota and/or Metalworks Studios, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The song’s ending indicates that it was recorded in tandem with If Eye Was The Man In Ur Life, but engineer H.M. Buff has stated that he was involved in the latter in 1998/1998. Recording engineer L. Stu Young said that Prince recorded The Marrying Kind, If Eye Was The Man In Ur Life and On The Couch back-to-back at Metalworks Studios, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. It is not known however if this was the initial recording or a re-recording of the song.
