Robert Randolph Debuts New Video For “Have Mercy”

Robert Randolph and the Family Band released a new video for their track, “Have Mercy” off of the upcoming new album, Brighter Days today. It was shot in Nashville this past April by Juan Ibanez.  Speaking about it, Randolph says “I felt it was time I wrote an uplifting powerful song that embraced my roots of coming from the church that speaks to everyone going through some sort of pain, shame and some many going struggles of depression in life. So we wanted to let each and everyone know that God is with all us and we can always look to the heavens for Grace and Mercy at all times. During the video we wanted to create an uplifting vibe with the choir that we used during the recording in Nashville. Shannon Sanders and his choir totally made the vibe work even better!! We hope everyone enjoys the video and feels uplifted. We also hope it puts a smile on someone’s  face all around the world.”

Fans will get a sneak peak of Brighter Days when Randolph performs at various shows and festivals this summer. This past weekend at the NOLA Jazz and Heritage Festival, John Prine had to cancel at the last minute and Randolph was able to step in and take his place. The news of this prompted Dave Matthews to invite him to sit-in during his headline set on “Louisiana Bayou”.

For the album Brighter Days, Randolph chose to work with producer Dave Cobb who is best known for his work with new country stars like Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Brandi Carlile, and Jason Isbell.
