Plectrum Electrum is an instrumental composed by Donna Grantis, originally released by her own Donna Grantis Electric Band's 2012 album Suites, under the name Elektra (Elektra Suite).

The title was streamed as a video, on the Vimeo account of photographer Madison Dube, and linked on the 3rd Eye Girl social media channels on 13 March, 2013. The video begins with the caption "An extremely short film". Although "3rdEyeGirl" is captioned as an artist credit, Prince is shown as the lead guitarist and bandleader.

While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in early 2013 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. The video seemingly documenting the 3rdEyeGirl band rehearsals.

The title has been mentioned in various online articles and interviews with bandmembers as being the title track for an album by 3rdEyeGirl, due for release in late 2013.
