...Back 2 The Lotus is the twelfth and final track on Prince’s 33rd studio album Lotusflow3r, and is a bookend to the album’s first track From The Lotus....
Basic tracking took place on 19 November 2004, during a three-and-a-half hour session with Michael B. on drums and Sonny T. on bass at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota that also yielded 3121, From The Lotus..., Colonized Mind, Love Like Jazz, Wall Of Berlin, Planet Earth, Guitar, a song titled Shameless as well as two or three others.
A tape photographed in Prince’s vault at Paisley Park Studios lists Wall Of Berlin as 19 November 2004, which alludes this is the exact date for all of the songs in this sessions.
In an August 2006 interview, Michael B. said [they recorded] eleven or twelve tracks in three and a half hours that night. On a later occasion, he indicated that this was the last recording session they did with Prince for a while after that.
Lyrics included in the track, stating "From the lotus flower..." were sampled in 3121 (released three years prior), supporting the theory that this track (and its counterpart From The Lotus...) were recorded in 2004. It is not known if further work was done on the track later.
