It’s here!

It was revealed last week that legendary recording artist Prince had recorded a tribute track for the people of Baltimore, and now the track has premiered. Titled “Baltimore”, the upbeat, funky number name-drops Michael Brown and Freddie Gray, both victims of senseless police brutality.

The original recording subsequently became a demo when Prince, that very same night – all alone in Studio A, played all the instruments on an entire new version of the song. The next morning Joshua Welton and Kirk Johnson transferred Prince‘s tracks into Studio B and mixing began. As the song neared completion at Prince’s behest Eryn Allen Kane graciously flew in on a moment’s notice and graced the track with her angelic presence.

Lyrics include “If there ain’t no justice, then there ain’t no peace.” LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Seriously, this song is awesome. Check it out below.
