Screen-Shot-2015-05-09-at-4.10.26-PM

Before taking stage at his ‘Rally 4 Peace’ concert in Baltimore this past Sunday, Prince shares his ode to Charm City in recognition of the city’s recent events. The concert will be streamed on Tidal.

The original recording subsequently became a demo when Prince, that very same night – all alone in Studio A, played all the instruments on an entire new version of the song. The next morning Joshua Welton and Kirk Johnson transferred Prince’s tracks in2 Studio B. and mixing began. As the song neared completion at Prince’s behest Eryn Allen Kane graciously flew in on a moment’s notice and graced the track with her angelic presence.
