Mercury Rev Collaborates with Margo Price and More for Bobbie Gentry Commemoration

Nearly 40 years have passed since country explorer Bobbie Gentry released her last album, but her influence only seems to be growing. Look at the recent records of Margo Price, Kacey Musgraves, or even the supergroup boygenius. Next February, Mercury Rev will commemorate the 40th anniversary of Gentry’s daring second album, a concept LP about struggling in the South, The Delta Sweete, with a full-length, star-studded cover. Read all about the project and hear their collaboration with Margo Price on Gentry’s “Sermon” at NPR.
