For nearly 60 years, John Cale has been reimagining how his music is made, sounds, and even works. "Mercy", Cale’s 1st full album in a decade, moves through true dark night of the soul electronic torment toward vulnerable love songs and hopeful considerations for the future with the help of some of music’s most curious young minds (Weyes Blood, Animal Collective). Cale has always searched for new ways to explore old ideas of alienation, hurt, and joy. "Mercy" is the latest transfixing find of this unsatisfied mind. To be released today, January 20th, 2023.
