After the New York City setback in 1976, Prince hired a manager and returned to the studio. Two songs recorded in 1977 that were never officially released by him, “Make It Through the Storm” and “We Can Work It Out,” are the focus of episode 140 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast. With lyrics by Chris Moon, “Make It Through the Storm” doesn’t get the complete breakdown treatment, but the story behind the Prince-penned “We Can Work It Out” makes for an amusing narrative for his earliest record label interactions.

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!
