Digital Garden is the third track on Prince’s 24th album The Rainbow Children, his first album after reverting to the name Prince. In late 2001, it was also included as the fourth and final track on the She Loves Me 4 Me "Jazz Sampler" promo CD available only in the USA.
Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that basic tracking took place in late 2000 or early 2001 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
The musical track transforms into a segue that continues the narrative of the album. "The Banished Ones" take over the world, except for the palace of the "Rainbow Children", which they surround with a "digital garden"; they try to remove "The Wise One" (king of the Rainbow Children) from power. The Wise One eventually "obliged with an invisible deed", and The Banished Ones return to the place they were born, "Menda City" (a play on words of "mendacity"). The Rainbow Children are then "willing to go door-to-door in search of those willing to do the work" of dismantling the digital garden. The segue then leads directly into The Work Pt. 1.
