On “Mercury,” Lacy channels a bossa-nova sound and melds it with his usual funk-filled tendencies. A mellow acoustic guitar compels listeners to sway to and fro. Lacy wrote, produced and performed the track himself.
The video sees Lacy trapped in a cage of fences, walking about as a wolf stalks him from just outside his prison. Once the wolf infiltrates Lacy’s enclosure, the singer appears to exist in multiple places at once.
