Free Urself (stylized as FREE URSELF) is a track made available on streaming music service Tidal as part of its Purple Pick of the Week series of "new tracks, exclusives, rarities and more from the vault, curated personally by Prince". The track was the fourth offering in the series, and the first previously-unreleased track with Prince as the credited artist.
The artwork used with the track had been previously shown (with the words "Free Urself") in three teaser videos for the track Stare four months earlier. All three teaser videos consisted of a excerpt of Stare, over text and images stating "new funk" by Prince would be coming in Summer 2015.
It has been speculated that Free Urself is the title of an album which would include both the title track and Stare (and possibly Baltimore), but this has not been confirmed.
On 30 September, 2015 the song was made available as a stand-alone single on iTunes without prior announcement.
While specific recording dates are not known, it is assumed to have been recorded in early 2015 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.
