Today sees a double treat for Dolly Parton fans, with news that she’ll be releasing a new studio album in August, as well as a special Glastonbury momento.
The lady from Tennessee who’s sold a staggering 100million records worldwide in her 52-year career, is launching the first single, the title track, today, and HuffPostUK readers can listen to it exclusively here.
In her inimitable fashion, Dolly says of the new album:
“I may not be pure, but I’m as simple as they come! This new ‘Pure and Simple’ project is really special to me because I’m taking my fans back to my roots.
“I feel like these songs have a pure, tender side and we didn’t go overboard with arrangements. I’m so glad we’ve teamed up with our friends at Sony to get this album out to the fans.”
Dolly, co-producer and songwriter on ‘Pure and Simple’, also revealed the album’s cover art and tracklist today. While the first disc is a collection of brand new studio material, the second disc is a recording of her memorable live set when when she wowed the crowds at Glastonbury in 2014.
