Freaks On This Side is the seventh track on the New Power Generation's third and final 'solo' album Newpower Soul.

While specific recording dates are not known, the album was recorded between May 1997 and February 1998, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Prince often began chants of "freaks on this side" during concerts to work up different sections of the audience, beginning 28 February 1998 (a.m.): Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA, which may indicate the track was recorded late in the sessions, but this is speculative.
