Sessions and compiling
Record label RCA had encouraged Deborah Allen to explore and expand her musical horizons; she had begun to employ electronic instrumentation on her previous album "Let Me Be the First", issued in 1984. Deborah Allen and Prince were recording in different studios at the Sunset Sound, Los Angeles, California, USA, when she asked a song to Prince, through her sound engineer Bill Jackson who had previously worked with him. Prince re-recorded Witness 4 The Prosecution for her but chose to give her the newly written Telepathy.
The album produced two singles, Telepathy and You’re The Kind Of Trouble, but they failed to enter any of US Billboard charts.
Telepathy was remastered and re-released digitally on 20 October 2023.
