Kanye West unveils second new song of the week ‘Mercy’ – audio

The follow-up to 'Theraflu' features contributions from Big Sean, Pusha-T and 2 Chainz

Kanye West has unveiled another new song, entitled ‘Mercy’. Scroll down to listen the track.

The track, which features contributions from Big Sean, Pusha-T and 2 Chainz, follows ‘Theraflu’, which premiered earlier this week. Earlier today (April 6) a spokesperson from the American cough and cold medicine Theraflu from which the song lifted its name, said that they ‘in no way endorse’ the track, which is a collaboration between West and DJ Khaled.

‘Mercy’ is the first track to be taken from West’s ‘G.O.O.D. Music’ album, which is set for release later this year and will feature appearances from a host of artists on West’s G.O.O.D. label, writes Rolling Stone.

The Good Friday release sees the song – which debuted on US radio yesterday – available for digital download from today. The track is also streaming at Kanyewest.com.

Meanwhile, animal rights charity PETA, have compared Kanye West to a ‘caveman’, after the musician turned fashionista referenced a mink fur coat in ‘Theraflu’.

PETA’s senior vice president, Dan Matthews said to XXL: “He’s a great musician but doesn’t seem to have the fashion sense to design anything more than caveman costumes. We keep hoping that one day he’ll find his heart and join evolved style icons—including Russell Simmons, Pink and Natalie Portman—who have dropped animal skins.”
