Joe Henry as producer, that would be perfect...

Mercury Rev has released Bobbie Gentry's 'The Delta Sweete' Revisited . 

It is their own version of Bobbie Gentry's 'The Delta Sweete' featuring contributions from Norah Jones, Hope Sandoval, Lucinda Williams, Margo Price, Beth Orton, Susanne Sundfor, Laetitia Sadier, Carice van Houten, Rachel Goswell, Vashti Bunyan, Kaela Sinclair, Marissa Nadler and Phoebe Bridger.

Spanish magazine rock the best music has written a review on Mercury Rev's album. Laurent Berger, the writer of the review, ends the article by hoping that this album encourages Bobbie Gentry to record some new music, with Joe Henry in the producers' seat.

freely translated :

The album ('The Delta Sweete Revisited') is a fascinating work, which we hope will achieve the success it deserves. 12 voices, 12 gems alien to time. Who knows what Bobby will think of this album? Maybe she is encouraged to record something new! With Joe Henry as a producer would be perfect!

P.S. : I haven't heard the interview, but according to Wikipedia Joe cited "Ode" as "an incredibly deft bit of writing in the way that that story is unfolded. … [It] places the character in a moment, and then the story just starts to unfold around it", and it was a song that influenced him early in his life listening to music on the radio.
