Upcoming Netflix Film to Feature New Dolly Parton Songs
Dolly Parton fans will be doubly delighted later when Netflix airs the original movie Dumplin', which is both a film with a heartfelt message—and, perhaps even more importantly, new music and collaborations from the legend herself!
Dumplin', which tells the story of a plus-size teen who revolutionizes the pageant industry by entering and causing a revolt in her small Texas town, features newly recorded collaborations of some of Parton's most popular songs in addition to six new original compositions.
The new songs are co-written by Parton and Grammy nominee Linda Perry; the duo also worked together to produce the soundtrack,out on Nov. 30. The album's all-star cast includes such guest vocalists as Sia, Miranda Lambert, Mavis Staples, Elle King, Alison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent, Danielle Macdonald, and Jennifer Aniston—the latter who recently dished on the Ellen show that she couldn't believe she was actually getting a chance to record with Parton.
Parton will be releasing the first collaborative effort from the soundtrack, a duet with pop star Sia, "Here I Am," at midnight Sept. 13.
Dumplin’ stars Aniston and McDonald, as well as Odeya Rush, Dove Cameron and Harold Perrineau. The film is directed by Anne Fletcher. There is no set release date for the movie as of yet.
