Prince records song for Baltimore protests

Posted on


Prince is the latest public figure to throw support behind the protests in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old who died from injuries he sustained while in police custody.

According to Prince’s publicist, the enigmatic singer has recorded a new, untitled song that “addresses the unrest in Baltimore and the socio/political issues around the country in the wake of a slew of killings of young black men.” The track, which Prince recorded at Paisley Park Studios in Minnesota this week, does not have a release date. Artwork for the single can be seen below.


On Friday, Gray’s death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner’s office. Soon after, Maryland’s state prosecutor, Marilyn J. Mosby, announced that six officers will be charged in conjunction with Gray’s murder.
