P.R.L. Newbor11
P.R.L.
Album:
Unreleased.

Written by:
Unknown.

Musicians:
Unknown.

Notes:
Written and recorded during the Chinese Democracy era. Leak on October 3, 2019. Instrumental, annotated as having no guitars, so assumingly guitar were supposed to be added to the final song. It is also annotated as "no Thyme", so possibly the track Thyme was supposed to be the intro to P.R.L.

According to an article in RS Argentina from January 2001, Axl intended for the second album of new material to be named "P.R.L.", after this song.

Live performances:
This song has never been played live, although portions of if might have been played.


Lyrics:

The leaked version contains no lyrics.


P.R.L. Newbor11

I am curious about this song and what might have happened to it in the period after the leaked version was recorded in November 2000 and until Axl talked about wanting to name the sister album to Chinese Democracy after it. Axl must really have liked it considering that he intended to name the album after it.

On the leaked version it is annotated "w/out THYME (no gtrs)", suggesting both that it was intended to be merged with the track Thyme which was also leaked. Thyme is an interesting track of about 2 minutes that could go as an introduction to P.R.L. And Thyme (on Rough Mixes CD #4) is annotated "(P.R.L)" further indicating that these two tracks somehow go together.

The "no gtrs" likely point to there having been recorded a version of P.R.L. with guitars, or that they intended to do so shortly. This also suggests they were working on this song at the time of the recordings in November 2000.
