Mind Bells is the sixth track on Kahoru Kohiruimaki’s sixth album Time The Motion (the first of two Prince-related tracks). The track was written and produced by Prince and Levi Seacer, Jr.
While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in Summer 1989, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as Bliss, Sex, Heaven Must Be Near and Seven Corners). Kahoru Kohiruimaki’s manager, Seijiro Udo, had promoted Prince’s Japanese concerts on the Lovesexy Tour, and Udo asked Prince to provide some tracks for Kohiruimaki, leading to the recording of Mind Bells and Bliss. Kahoru Kohiruimaki recorded her own vocals over the basic tracks in Autumn 1989 (studio information is needed for her recording).
