You may have noticed that SPIN.com is entirely brand new this month. One of the big differences: our on-demand video section. With this new regular feature, we’ll be dipping into our vast, growing video vault to show off some of our best clips.

Today’s (April 16) clip recalls an unseasonably warm morning this past January, when SPIN.com joined Duffy and band in Brooklyn to record new tune “Mercy,” the second single off the chanteuse’s debut album, Rockferry. Watch footage of the performance, a stripped down rendition with an acoustic guitar and drum box setting the stage for Duffy’s urgent retro-soul groove, and be sure to check back to SPIN.com for more picks from the video vault, and visit our video section for all the latest.
