Brett Young Ships New Stripped-Down Single, “Mercy,” to Country Radio [Listen]

Following back-to-back-to-back No. 1 singles “Sleep Without You,” “In Case You Didn’t Know” and “Like I Loved You” from his 2017 self-titled debut album, Brett Young will try to make it four in a row by releasing “Mercy” to country radio on Feb. 20.

The breakup ballad, which was co-penned by Brett and Sean McConnell, features simple piano accompaniment with Brett’s stripped-down vocals that beckon his love interest to end their relationship with “mercy.”

“‘Mercy’ is the new single because of the amazing fan response,” Brett said. “It’s the feeling you get when someone breaks your heart but won’t let you move on. ‘Mercy’ is a plea to rip the Band-Aid off, and many people can relate to that.”
