Dave Matthews played a new Dave Matthews Band song, “Mercy,” at this afternoon’s taping of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

Dave played the new DMB song, “Mercy,” on an acoustic guitar, accompanied by The Roots’ Captain Kirk Douglas, also on acoustic guitar. According to a tweet from Jimmy Fallon yesterday, the song will be on the new DMB album.

Jarrard Cole, a reporter for reesenews at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, tweeted these partial lyrics from the chorus of “Mercy:” “Mercy, can we overcome this/One by one we turn this around.”

The “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” taping took place on the UNC campus, where the special guest was President Barack Obama. Dave and Fallon opened the show with a comedy song, “Walk of Shame.”

The episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” featuring Obama and Dave airs at 12:35 ET on NBC.

Here’s a photo of Dave Matthews and Captain Kirk Douglas playing the new Dave Matthews Band song, “Mercy,” taken by The Roots’ Questlove. And make sure to watch the Dave Matthews “Mercy” video too!
