Rearrange is a song Prince recorded on 8 December 1981, at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California. It is not entirely clear if Prince recorded it for one of his album or with The Time in mind. The music and arrangement of the song are very similar to the later recorded Lady Cab Driver, for which it seems almost a template.

In 1988 the track was pulled out from the vault and remixed at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. It is not known what the intention behind this was.

The song was released in 2019 as the fifth track on the Vault Tracks part 1 disc of a Deluxe edition of the 1999 album.

  • The released mix of this track was done by Nick Bolas specifically for the 1999 Deluxe release. It was made to replicate the original mix from the time the song was initially tracked, as much as possible. So even when a slightly different mix of this track, might exist, the now released version is not considered a true alternate mix of the track.
