What It Feels Like is the eighth track on Prince's 37th album Art Official Age. Almost 15 months before its release, however, the track was streamed during a DJ set by Dudley D. on 11 July 2013 (a.m.), during 3rdEye TV broadcast # 16. The track is a duet between Prince and Andy Allo.
Basic tracking dates are unknown, but it is likely the track was recorded between Summer 2011 and early 2012 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, during recording sessions for Andy Allo's second album Superconductor.
The track's lyrics make reference to the Biblical figures David and Saul. Although the phrase "this is what it feels like" is used repeatedly in When Stars Collide, which did end up on Superconductor, the tracks are otherwise unrelated.
