Surprise is an unreleased track recorded in Summer 1976 at Moon Sound, Minneapolis, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as Aces, Baby, Diamond Eyes, Don’t Forget, Don’t Hold Back, Fantasy, I’m Yours, Jelly Jam (which was later used as the instrumental portion of Just As Long As We’re Together), Leaving For New York, Love Is Forever (later renamed My Love Is Forever), Make It Through The Storm, Since We’ve Been Together and Soft And Wet).

Unlike many of the other tracks recorded during these sessions, the lyrics were written by Prince rather than by Chris Moon, and the music was also by Prince. Similar to the track Baby, recorded during the same sessions, the lyrics of Surprise dealt with an unexpected pregnancy.

The song remains unreleased.
