One Nite Alone... is the twenty-second studio album by Prince, released in 2002. It features him singing and accompanying himself on piano, making only occasional use of other instruments. It includes a cover of the Joni Mitchell classic, "A Case of You", retitled "A Case of U". Mitchell receives special thanks in the liner notes. One song that caused some controversy amongst fans[citation needed] is "Avalanche", which describes Abraham Lincoln as a racist.

One Nite Alone... was released online through the NPG Music Club and was never available in stores. Many fans have only heard the album through MP3 file-sharing, and original CD copies are quite rare.
