Good Friday just got a little more G.O.O.D., as Kanye West 's G.O.O.D. Music label will release a new single, "Mercy," on Friday, April 6. The track will presumably preview the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music group album.
News of the single came via Pusha T , the Clipse  rapper who is currently working on his official debut album for the Def Jam imprint. "April 6th is GOOD Friday… "MERCY" drops.." he posted on Twitter .
Update: Def Jam has revealed the single artwork, which confirms that West, Pusha T, Big Sean and 2 Chainz will be on the single.
The G.O.O.D. Friday stunt -- which nicely coincides with the Good Friday holiday this week -- was originally started by West in 2010 as a means of promoting his "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" album. Although that G.O.O.D. Friday campaign became a weekly song reveal, Pusha T did not state whether or not "Mercy" was the beginning of a prolonged series.
In December, Big Sean  revealed  that a long-in-the-works G.O.O.D. Music album was "almost done," and would feature West, Kid Cudi , CyHi da Prynce, John Legend , Common , Pusha T and Mr. Hudson, among others. The album does not yet have a release date.
