Xylophone was streamed as a 26-second clip only on the NPG Music Club upon its relaunch on 19 May 2003 (at the same time as a snippet of another untitled instrumental in the "Loft" area of the site). Nothing is known about the full track, although as a jazz instrumental with a title beginning with the letter X, it is widely regarded as an outtake from the Xpectation album, but this is unverified.

While specific recording details are not known, it is likely that basic tracking took place in Autumn 2001 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, although it may have been recorded in 2002 or early 2003 purely as incidental music for the NPG Music Club.
