On Wednesday, Prince released a newly mastered version of his Freddie Gray protest song, "Baltimore." Stream the updated track above.
On May 6, Prince recorded the original "Baltimore" — including performing each instrument — at his Paisley Park Studios in Minnesota, according to a press release. Chicago's Eryn Allen Kane contributed the soaring female vocals. The song is currently on sale on iTunes.
Prince performed the song live with his band, 3RDEYEGIRL, on May 10 at Royal Farms Arena as a part of his "Rally 4 Peace" concert. During the performance, Prince brought State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby to the front of the stage, where she received cheers from the crowd.
When the "Rally 4 Peace" concert was announced, promoter Live Nation stated in a press release, "a portion of the proceeds will be directed to the benefit of local Baltimore based youth charities." But how much, and which charities? The Sun has asked these questions to Prince's publicist multiple times — before the concert and since — but we have yet to receive a response.
