"Peace is more than the absence of war," delivers Prince on his heartfelt human rights offering, "Baltimore." Recorded live at his Paisley Park studios in Minnesota, and featuring vocals from newcomer Eryn Allen Kane, the song infuses a warm, feel-good vibe. Sort of reminiscent to when Bob Marley had his movement.
"Baltimore" is in support of the city of Baltimore, which is currently wrapped up in civil unrest after the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray while in police custody.
"Baltimore" arrives on the heels of the music icon and his band 3RDEYEGIRL's "Rally 4 Peace" concert, which will go down today (May 10) at the Royal Farms Arena.
The concert is "meant to be a catalyst for pause and reflection following the outpouring of violence that has gripped Baltimore and areas throughout the U.S." Other superstars are expected to make surprise appearances.
A portion of the proceeds will go to youth charities in Baltimore.
