The Secret Text is an unreleased track recorded at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. It was included as the sixth and final track on a CD found at Paisley Park Studios following Prince’s death, labeled "Live Band Trax". The other tracks (Ain’t Gonna Miss U When U’re Gone, Screwdriver, When She Comes, Shade Of Umber, and Boyfriend) mostly stem from 2012 or early 2013, suggesting that this track may have been recorded at the same time. It is not known if the version included on the CD was a live in-studio take with the then-nascent 3rdEyeGirl line-up, or a full studio recording for the band members to learn. Nothing else is known about the track.
