Sign O’ The Times is a Prince video released for broadcast and to promote the single.

The video is made of colored graphics forecasting the lyrics of the song and quite revolutionary at the time (one of) the first 'lyric videos' to have been made. It is the second video that doesn’t include an appearance from Prince (the first being the Paisley Park video in 1985).

Sign O’ The Times was included on The Hits Collection in 1993.
