Utopia is the ninth track (seventh song) on Graham Central Station’s eighth studio album GCS 2000. The song was written and produced by Larry Graham and Prince (as SymbolSmallerBlue.png), who also appears as a musician.

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place between November 1997, and January 1998, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The song contains a looped and distorted sample of the scream from the opening of Gett Off, and also contains a synth motif later used in The War.
