Like most of us, Prince has been moved by the violent protests happening in Baltimore over Freddie Gray's death. Unlike most of us, the legendary artist will share his feelings through song.
According to a spokesperson, the ART OFFICIAL AGE singer has recorded "a tribute to all of the people of the city of Baltimore."
It's understood that the track will discuss Gray's death, while in Baltimore police custody, and how the nation has been exposed to a series of young black men being killed, which sparked many socio/political issues.

Release plans for Prince's song have yet to be announced, but the artwork has been released (above.)

In typical Prince fashion, there is only one show scheduled so far, and it's in Louisville, Kentucky, which is where 3rdEyeGirl drummer Hannah Welton is from.
The tickets will go on sale tomorrow, March 9th, at 10am local time, and portions of the proceeds will go to Louisville charities.
It's not surprising that Prince isn't announcing the venues, because when he toured in the UK, each show was revealed on Twitter as they came up.
So, make sure you're glued to Twitter! Ha!
