Slow Love: Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast

On Episode 95 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, Farooq Ansari (@anti_social on Twitter) joins me to discuss the romantic throwback ballad, “Slow Love” from the Sign o’ the Times album. We also explore the song’s fascinating history from its origins as a Carole Davis penned composition and what compelled Prince to include a song co-written by another artist on his project.

Since I mention Matt Thorne’s #PrinceTwitterThread on “Slow Love,” I’ve included a link to his thread here.

Check out the Press Rewind discord at and join us in discussing all things Prince.

The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:

  • Take a track by track look at the lyrical content of Prince’s discography
  • Discuss my own interpretation of each song’s lyrics along with any guest I may have
  • If submitted, discuss listener’s interpretations of each song’s lyrics

Thank you for joining me on this journey through Prince’s catalog!
