Kanye West has released another new song hot on the heels of "Theraflu," his track for the new DJ Khaled record. "Mercy," the first song from the forthcoming G.O.O.D. Music album featuring artists from West's label, hit the Internet last night after premiering on radio programs including Funkmaster Flex's influential show on New York's Hot 97.

You can hear the new track, a spooky banger featuring verses by Big Sean, Pusha-T and 2 Chainz, below. The song, along with "Theraflu," is also up on West's site today, which happens to be Good Friday. See what Kanye did there? G.O.O.D. Friday? He's a clever man.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
