On the upcoming Dolly Parton album, Rockstar, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, the remaining members of The Beatles, will get together to perform a rendition of “Let It Be.” It will be released on November 17th by Butterfly Records and Big Machine Label Group and is a mix of rock originals and covers in 30 songs.
Sting from the Police appears on a cover of “Every Breath You Take” on Rockstar, Pink and Brandi Carlile contribute to a cover of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones, and Miley Cyrus makes an appearance alongside her godmother for a cover of “Wrecking Ball.” Debbie Harry, the lead singer of Blondie, performs at ‘Heart of Glass’ in another location.
There are also nine unique songs provided. ‘What Has Rock And Roll Ever Done For You,’ ‘I Dreamed About Elvis,’ and the title tune with Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora are a few of them. The album’s debut song, “Word of Fire,” will be available on May 11.
Two all-star duets by Rockstar round off the album. Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Peter Frampton, and Mick Fleetwood join Dolly Parton in a tribute to the Liverpool band’s song “Let It Be.” The next song is a rendition of “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, including posthumous vocals from Ronnie Van Zandt and Gary Rossington, both of whom went away in March.
The album is expected to have an all-star cast.
