In lieu of his tribute concert for the city of Baltimore tomorrow in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray while in the custoy of Baltimore police and the subsequent riots, Prince releases “Baltimore”. The appropriately titled song features Eryn Allen Kane on vocals and was premiered via Rolling Stone.

“Please know that all involved in this project never take for granted the privileges we have in this country,” the Soundcloud description reads. “Let’s all continue to fight the good fight and confront inhumanity on every level until the day it is no longer.”

Read the lyrics to the track below and hear it for yourself as well. Prince’s “Rally 4 Peace” concert will take place Sunday in Baltimore, available for free stream for the first hour via Tidal.

NOBODY GOT IN NOBODY’S WAY
SO EYE GUESS U COULD SAY
IT WAS A GOOD DAY
AT LEAST A LITTLE BETTER THAN THE DAY IN BALTIMORE
DOES ANYBODY HEAR US PRAY?
4 MICHAEL BROWN OR FREDDIE GRAY
PEACE IS MORE THAN THE ABSENCE OF WAR
ABSENCE OF WAR
R WE GONNA C ANOTHER BLOODY DAY?
WE’RE TIRED OF CRYIN’ & PEOPLE DYIN’
LET’S TAKE ALL THE GUNS AWAY
ABSENCE OF WAR—U AND ME
MAYBE WE CAN FINALLY SAY
ENUFF IS ENUFF IT’S TIME 4 LOVE
IT’S TIME 2 HEAR,
IT’S TIME 2 HEAR
THE GUITAR PLAY! (guitar solo)
