Exodus is the second album to be credited solely to the New Power Generation, despite featuring the songwriting, playing and vocals of Prince. While the New Power Generation's first album, Goldnigga, featured Tony Mosley as the lead vocaist and had a hip-hop feel, Exodus took things in a decidedly funkier direction and heavily featured the vocals of NPG bassist Sonny Thompson.
Exodus ... you can look at in a lot of different ways. It's an exit from a lot of things, an exit from a way of thinking and a way of doing things to do something new. ”
Mayte, The Sunday Show, 1994
