Mercury Rev’s Sweete tribute

Mercury Rev are set to release a reimagining of Bobbie Gentry’s 1968 album The Delta Sweete. Available through Bella Union on 8 February, The Delta Sweete Revisited features guest vocalists including Norah Jones, Hope Sandoval, Beth Orton, Lucinda Williams, Rachel Goswell, Vashti Bunyan, Marissa Nadler, Susanne Sundfør, Phoebe Bridgers, Margo Price, Kaela Sinclair, Carice van Houten and Laetitia Sadier. “Through the years, there was just a momentum That kept bringing me back to The Delta Sweete,” says the Rev’s Jonathan Donahue. “I couldn’t help but feel my heart go out for something That I’m sure Bobbie felt quite close to but seemed to be utterly unreadable to popular culture at the time.”
