Dave Matthews Band is back with new music, unveiling "Mercy," the lead single from the crew's upcoming album, "Away From the World," which is slated for a Sept. 11 release. For the album, the band teamed up with producer Steve Lillywhite, who produced the first three Dave Matthews Band records.

In "Mercy," Matthews sings a soulful plea for action in the face of adversity, with lyrics such as, "Crying won't save or feed a hungry child/ Can't lay down or wait for a miracle to change things."

Fans of Dave Matthews don't have to wait too long to catch the star on stage: he's co-headlining the Life is good Festival in Canton from Sept. 22 - 23.
