Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Dave Matthews performed a new song called "Mercy". Jimmy posted a tweet on Monday stating that Dave would be performing a song off the new album. The late night performance was acoustic with Roots guitarist Captain Kirk. Steve Lillywhite responded to a few fans on twitter expressing that "Mercy" is "not just acoustic on the album" and "its not quiet on the ablum". This solo version of the new song is only a taste of what's to come.
Jimmy Fallon also sung a rendition of "The Walk of Shame" with a little help from Dave Matthews, while President Barack Obama joined the Roots to slow jam the news.
This has fans itching for more. There has been very little information leading up to this performance to tell what will be on the new album and when we will see it. This is clearly a start of what's to come and we can't wait to see what's in store. The 2012 Summer tour kicks off in Woodlands, TX on May 18th!
