Dolly Parton reveals star-studded tracklist for first-ever rock album
Dolly Parton has finally given fans a release date and tracklist for her forthcoming rock album, Rockstar.
The country music star announced her intention to record a rock album upon her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year.
“If I’m gonna be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I’m gonna have to earn it,” she said at the time.
Staying true to her word, Parton revealed a star-studded, 30-song tracklist on Tuesday (9 May) for the album of rock ‘n’ roll covers and original songs, which will be released 17 November.
Rockstar features a Beatles reunion for “Let It Be”, Lizzo and her famous flute on “Stairway To Heaven”, and Miley Cyrus joins her godmother on “Wrecking Ball”.
Sting, Chris Stapleton, Debbie Harry, Elton John, John Fogerty, Joan Jett and Steven Tyler are among the other featured artists.
“I’m so excited to finally present my first rock n’ roll album, Rockstar!” Parton said in a statement.
“I am very honoured and privileged to have worked with some of the greatest iconic singers and musicians of all time, and to be able to sing all the iconic songs throughout the album was a joy beyond measure. I hope everybody enjoys the album as much as I’ve enjoyed putting it together!”
