To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Marvin Gaye’s classic album What’s Going On, Spotify has teamed with Lucky Daye for a special edition of their Spotify Singles.

Alongside a live version of his Painted track “Floods,” Daye also provides a cover of “Mercy Mercy Me.” “[Recording ‘Mercy Mercy Me’] was so different because I had to listen to everything and catch every little detail he [Marvin Gaye] did because I didn’t wanna take his song to a lower standard, but also wanted to infuse it with my own flavor,” the singer says about the track.
