Piano & A Microphone 1983 collects previously unreleased and unheard intimate piano records by Prince, and it's out this Friday. One of the songs, "Mary Don't You Weep," has a new video directed by Salomon Ligthelm – the song was heard in Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, and appeared in an extended trailer for the recent film. The new visuals follow a recently deceased young man and his family coming to terms with his death, and take inspiration from Prince's work as an activist, and begin with a quote from his appearance at the 2015 Rally 4 Peace: “The system is broken. It’s going to take young people to fix it. We need new ideas, new life…” Watch the video for "Mary Don't You Weep above."
