A day in Baltimore.
As announced a week ago, Prince recorded a tribute to the people of Baltimore following the unrest in the city after the death of Freddie Gray in police custody.
The final version of ‘Baltimore’ was added to Prince’s Soundcloud this morning and features vocals from Eryn Allen Kane. According to the track description Prince played all the instruments on the song, based off a previous demo.
A message included in the Soundcloud page reads: “Please know that all involved in this project never take for granted the privileges we have in this country. Let’s all continue to fight the good fight and confront inhumanity on every level until the day it is no longer.”
‘Baltimore’ comes a day before Prince is set to hold a “Rally 4 Peace” in the city. The concert will include guests and will be streamed for free via Tidal.
