Coincidence Or Fate? is the tenth track on the The NPG Orchestra’s first and only album Kamasutra, initially released on cassette in 1997 (the album was later included as a bonus CD on the direct order version of Crystal Ball, Prince’s 20th album Crystal Ball, the fourth album to be credited to SymbolSmallerBlue.png).

Basic tracking dates are unknown, but it is likely that the track was recorded in 1994 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, with orchestral overdubs by Clare Fischer’s orchestra done at Ocean Way Recording, Hollywood, California. Unlike all other tracks on the album, Prince (as SymbolSmallerBlue.png) barely appears on the track, appearing to add only keyboard embellishments in the final few seconds of the track.
