Brett Young’s self titled debut album has already gone gold after selling over 500,000 copies. But before he works on a new album later this year, he is giving radio listeners one more song from his first album: “Mercy”.
In an interview with The Tennessean, Brett says that he is out to hurt people’s feelings- in a good way. “I think it’s one of those things where you’d pull up in your driveway and (the song) gets you emotional and what you want to do is turn it off but you can’t so you stay in your driveway and have a cry by yourself,” Young said. “I hope that’s that song for everybody.”
Young believes “Mercy” connects with men and women because “break-ups aren’t gender specific.” and that “Hurt is hurt. Time is time. Space is space. Getting over lost love and mending a broken heart is a very fragile process and it requires space from the person that hurt you. When that person is casual about the process and lingers around your life after the break up, it’s inconsiderate and selfish.”
