Marvin Gaye's "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" has been covered by Paula Cole.
Calling the late Motown icon "a real leader for me, a touchstone," the singer songwriter known for "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone" and the Dawsons Creek theme "I Don't Want to Wait" tells Billboard, "I've always loved that song. I felt that I needed to cover it and put that message back out in the world."
Cole's contemporary take -- billed as "The Ecology (Mercy Mercy Me)" -- will be on her next album, Revolution, which drops September 13th. It's already streaming on YouTube.
