Prince and several other artists are set to play a "Rally 4 Peace" concert in Baltimore on Sunday, partly to honor the late Freddie Gray, whose death sparked days of civil unrest and led to criminal charges against six Baltimore police officers.
Those outside of Baltimore will be able to live audio stream the concert on Jay-Z-backed Tidal from 8 p.m.-9 p.m. Sunday night.
The recording artist and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Prince released his new song "Baltimore" on Saturday, making the track available on the musician's Soundcloud page.
While upbeat in tone and tempo, "Baltimore" addresses the somber issues highlighted in the death of Freddie Gray and the subsequent riots and unrest, also touching on broader themes of race and violence:
We're tired of crying.
And people dying.
Let's take all the guns away.
