Prince‘s untimely death has affected many people and artist and musicians are paying their respects via tributes. Donnie Trumpet of the Social Experiment shares his dedication in the form of a new song titled “In Your Light.” The track features Sima Cunningham and it’s dedicated to Prince and his lesser-known song, “Donna,” a song that helped Donnie through a rough time in his life. The Chicago instrumentalist explains:

One of my best friends and musical mentors, Maceo from the band The Omys gave me a mix cd when i was going through a tough time with a song called Donna by Prince. I listened to the song over and over in the car. I never imported the cd, could only hear it in the car, so when i tried listening to it on tour i couldn’t find it anywhere. As you know Prince’s music is pretty rare on the internet but this song was especially elusive because it was a part of a compilation album of his “unfinished” music. This was a really powerful inspiration for me after having worked so hard on Surf and still having so much material left over that didn’t quite fit but still described my vision and passion of the era of making music when putting Surf together. Songs are like poems, they’re never done. In honor of that song and all songs like it, and the earth claiming one of the greatest humans to ever grace its land, Prince…I dedicate this to everyone who will ever hear it.

Listen to the track below.
