Behind the song: ''Mercy'' by Duffy
"I'd achieved everything I'd wanted to achieve on the album at that point and I just wanted to let loose. I wanted something sexy. It's about sexual liberty, being young, morals, temptation, all that kind of thing.'' - Duffy
I just love organic sound. I love strings. I love the way chords can be cleverly arranged. The '60s was the best era in music and it's a real honor for me to think that it nods to that but it was never an intention.'' - Duffy
''It's very important that my songs start from an organic source, rather than a drum loop. You can dress it up how you like but at the end it's about the strength of the song, the melody and the words." - Duffy
