Prince released his protest song "Baltimore" on SoundCloud Saturday ahead of the Rally 4 Peace concert Sunday at the city's Royal Farms Arena.
As a spokesperson for the pop star said earlier this week, the track is about “the unrest in Baltimore and the socio/political issues around the country in the wake of a slew of killings of young black men."
He recorded it at his Paisley Park studio near Minneapolis.
Does anybody hear us pray for Michael Brown and Freddie Gray?
Peace is more than the absence of war
Are we gonna see another bloody day?
We're tired of crying and people dying
Let's take all the guns away.
