Three is the third track on Madhouse’s first album 8. Three was written and produced by Prince (credited only to Madhouse), with saxophone and musical input by Eric Leeds. No musician is credited on the record.

Basic tracking took place on 29 September 1986 at Prince’s Galpin Blvd Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (the day after Baby Doll House, One and Two, the same day as Four, Five and When The Dawn Of The Morning Comes, the day before Six and Seven), although it is credited as being recorded at "Madhouse Studios", Pittsburgh, PA, USA (a fictional studio). It is likely that the title was assigned only after the final sequence had been arranged for the album.
