Sony Music act Davido has released his much anticipated EP "Son Of Mercy".

The singer in January 2016 signed a deal with Sony Music Entertainment which will have him release records under the music giants.

"Son Of Mercy" EP is the first project from the deal, and sees Davido experiment with new sounds, while maintaining his original Nigerian flavour.

The EP contains five tracks with production credits from Shizzi, Spellz, Kiddominant and more. International act Tinashe, Simi and Nasty C are all featured on the project.

Two singles off the album has been released, with 'Gbabe Oshi' and 'How long' already on rotation across the continent.

Davido had earlier spoken to Pulse on the necessity of the EP. He said: The point of the EP is just to put out as much music as possible. Anyway I can put out music, I will do it. Before you drop albums, they allow you drop the EP, so I said ‘Yo let’s do it’. I had options to just wait, drop the single, then drop the EP. I was like ‘no let me just drop the EP’.

"Son Of Mercy" EP can be purchased on all digital stores worldwide.
