have mercy

Indie rock outfit, Have Mercy, have just announced that they will be releasing a split with one of No Sleep Records’ newest signings, Somos. The split is due out on February 24 via NSR. Below, you can listen to the band’s cover of “Somebody’s Baby” by Jackson Browne.

Lead singer Brian Swindle shares with AltPress: “When we were approached about doing the split with Somos we were immediately down. We were just about to release our 2nd LP, A Place Of Our Own, so we knew we didn’t want to put out anymore newer songs that soon after. We decided to record a cover of ‘Somebody’s Baby’ by Jackson Browne because it was the only one we could agree on and we all love that song.”

You can stream Have Mercy’s rendition of “Somebody’s Baby” below. Pre-orders for the split are available here. Additionally, tour dates for the band’s leg with Front Porch Step can be found below.
