Country icon Dolly Parton recently shared a reimagined version of Miley Cyrus‘s hit song “Wrecking Ball.”
The revamped version of “Wrecking Ball,” featuring Cyrus, will appear on Parton’s upcoming Rockstar album. The dynamic pair first performed the track on “Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party,” which aired live on NBC.
“I remember the first time I heard ‘Wrecking Ball,’ it hit me the same way as it did the first time I heard ‘I Will Always Love You’ by Whitney Houston,” Parton said in an Instagram video. “I was driving, heard that one, and I almost wrecked. And when I heard ‘Wrecking Ball,’ I almost wrecked again. I thought when it started into that chorus, ‘It hit me like a wrecking ball,’ I thought, ‘Well, how great can a song be?'”
“I’ve grown up covering my Aunt Dollys music & it’s an honor to hear her singing one of my songs,” Cyrus wrote on Instagram. “I love you Aunt Dolly! I’m so happy to add another collaboration under our bedazzled (studded leather) belt! We’re ROCKSTARS now! You can hear so much sweetness and love on this record. Excited to share it with everyone. Forever your Doll Baby, Miley.”
Rockstar is set for release on November 17 via Butterfly Records. It will be available as a 4 LP set, a 2 CD set, digital download and on all streaming services.
Parton has previously released “World on Fire,” a cover of Heart‘s “Magic Man” featuring Ann Wilson and the original track “Bygones,” featuring Rob Halford, Nikki Sixx and John 5. She’s also covered “We Are the Champions,” “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,” and, with Linda Perry, 4 Non Blondes’ “What’s Up?”
The 30-song Rockstar features several guests, including Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Steve Perry, Sting, Steven Tyler, Stevie Nicks, Elton John and more.
