Single details

Released: 8 June 1984
Related album: Ice Cream Castle
Label(s): Warner Bros.
Non-album tracks: Tricky (3:12)

Ice Cream Castles (Edit) (3:37)

Ice Cream Castles was the first single to be released from The Time's third album Ice Cream Castle. It was released four weeks prior to the album. The b-side, Tricky, was not available on any album. Both Ice Cream Castles and Tricky featured Prince as a co-writer (full writer on Tricky) and performer, although his input was uncredited.

Being released prior to The Time's exposure in the movie Purple Rain, and the song not being featured in the movie, the single didn't benefit the same publicity and crossed-promotion as further singles released from the same album.

The single reached number 11 on the Billboard Black Chart, and failed to enter the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It didn't fared much better in the Billboard Dance/Disco Top 80 chart, reaching position 70 only.
