Originally released at the height of Gentry's superstardom following her #1 smash 'Ode To Billie Joe,' The Delta Sweete is an unrestrained statement of empowerment that dips into everything from swamp-rock, R&B-style horns, and orchestral arrangements.

The Delta Sweete Revisited is Mercury Rev's committed and affectionate resurrection of an album that anticipated by three decades their own pivotal expedition through transcendental America, 1998's Deserter's Songs. Not unlike The Delta Sweete, that record merged jazz, folk, and rock with Disney soundtrack fantasia, and heralded Mercury Rev's rebirth as purveyors of a unique brand of the popular American songbook.

Mercury Rev are backed on vocals by an unmatched roster of women across a range of genres: Margo Price, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucinda Williams, Vashti Bunyan, Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), Susanne Sundfør, Lætitia Sadier (Stereolab), Marissa Nadler, Kaela Sinclair (M83) Norah Jones and more.
