All The King’s Horses is an unreleased track believed to have been recorded in 2002 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Clare Fischer recorded an orchestral part in September 2002, but nothing else is known about the song. Following the song’s recording, Prince released three instrumental albums before returning to the commercial pop music scene; this track may simply have not fit thematically on any of Prince’s albums following its recording.

The phrase "all the King’s horses" is usually a reference to a line from the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty, but may also be a reference to movies, books, albums or songs of the same name (see here for details).
