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.
