Planet Earth is the first track from Prince’s 32nd album Planet Earth. Basic tracking took place on 19 November 2004, during a three-and-a-half hour session with Michael B. on drums and Sonny T. on bass at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota that also yielded 3121, From The Lotus..., ...Back 2 The Lotus, Colonized Mind, Love Like Jazz, Wall Of Berlin, Guitar, Shameless and others tracks. In an August 2006 interview, Michael B. said they recorded eleven or twelve tracks that night. On a different occasion he later indicated that this was the last recording session they did with Prince for a while after that. Background vocal overdubs were subsequently done in 2007.
The album credits do not indicate who else played on the track.
