Dolly Parton is less than a month away from releasing her 49th studio album, Rockstar. The colossal 30-track LP is due out November 17 and features just about everybody — from Paul McCartney to Lizzo, Peter Frampton to Debbie Harry, Ringo Starr to Sting, etc.


Today (October 20), the country legend and reluctant Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee has shared the project’s fifth single. It’s a cover of “Wrecking Ball,” the 2013 track that earned Miley Cyrus her first Grammy nomination and cemented the former child star as a bona fide recording artist. For her rendition, Parton recruits Cyrus herself, singing the song in cinematic tandem with its originator.

Listen to Parton and Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” duet and check out Rockstar’s cover art and tracklist below.
