My Little Pill is the sixth track on Prince’s 22nd album The Vault... Old Friends 4 Sale.
While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in mid-late March 1992 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as I’ll Do Anything, Make Believe and a re-recording of Empty Room). The song was written specifically for the James L. Brooks movie I’ll Do Anything.
The track was re-recorded by actress Julie Kavner for the movie, and was included in a rough cut of the movie. This version was included as the third track on a planned I’ll Do Anything album. While Prince was not directly involved in this version, it is included in the listing here as his own version was intended as a demo for the soundtrack version. When preview audience reactions to the music were overwhelmingly negative, all production numbers from the film were cut, and the album was abandoned.
