Song of the Day: Mercury Rev (feat. Lucinda Williams) – Ode To Billie Joe

On February 8th Mercury Rev will release The Delta Sweete Revisited a song for song tribute to Bobbie Gentry’s 1968 release. Each song will feature a different female singer to include Hope Sandoval, Margo Price and Susanne Sundfor. Of course, you can’t release a Bobbie Gentry tribute record without including the iconic “Ode To Billie Joe.” The version that ends the record here is a brooding atmospheric beauty with Lucinda Williams playing the lead role.
