The Rainbow Children is the 24th studio album by American recording artist Prince, originally released in November 2001 via NPG.

The Rainbow Children was initially sold on Prince's trailblazing website the NPG Music Club, and was commercially released on 20 November 2001 via NPG Records. It was the first album (outside of the works he distributed through his NPG Music Club) to be released under the name Prince since he had changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol in 1993, and it was his first fully independent release to be issued without any major label backing.

The Rainbow Children is a concept album intertwining Prince's recurring themes of spirituality and sexuality, love and social consciousness, set in a metaphoric utopian narrative.

Musically, the album showcased a new jazz-influenced direction for Prince, with live drums and expansive horn charts.

The album's original cover artwork – the Cbabi Bayoc painting "The Reine Keis Quintet" – holds a place of honour at Prince's Paisley Park to this day, and is displayed in his NPG Music Club Room.

Many songs were performed live during Prince's 2002 One Nite Alone... Tour, which became an instant success with fans and critics alike.

This double album 2LP record set is a 2020 reissue on crystal clear vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with 16 page booklet and download code, pressed in Europe via Legacy.
