Boots "Mercy"

Boots 'Mercy'
Jordy Asher — better known under his producing moniker Boots — gained a lot of attention for his work on Beyoncé's 2013 surprise self-titled album, but he's a musician in his own right.

Back in spring he unveiled a video for "EST" and now he's shared a new track called "Mercy." Starting off moody and minimal before building to a hand-clapping, guitar solo-ing crescendo, it's a solid step out of Yoncé's shadow and well worth a listen.
