On the album, she joined forces with John Fogerty, Steve Perry, Steven Tyler, Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, Pink and Brandi Carlile.
After the announcement, she released two new songs “Don't Make Me Have To Come Down There” and “Gonna Be You”.
“Don't Make Me Have To Come Down There” was written and produced by Dolly Parton.
“I got up, I started writing this song over a period of weeks, months,” Dolly Parton said of the song. “I finished it as things would come to me, and I just felt like I should drop it on my birthday. So, I hope you enjoy it.”
She added, “It's a song that came to me in a dream and I felt like it was worth putting out there. Something special - well, it's special to me.”
“Gonna Be You” is written for the upcoming sports film “80 for Brady” directed by Kyle Marvin, starring Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, Sally Field and Tom Brady.
On the song, Dolly Parton teamed up with American rock band The Go-Go's Belinda Carlisle, American singer-songwriter Cyndi Lauper, Cuban-American singer-songwriter Gloria EstefanM and American rock band Blondie's Debbie Harry.
The track was written by Diane Warren and produced by Damon Elliott and Ish Cano.
Diane Warren said of the song, “When I wrote “Gonna Be You” for 80 for Brady, I wanted to write a song that celebrated these women's deep friendship. Since “80” was in the title I got a crazy idea, why not get some of the most iconic singers from the '80s, who are still amazing and always will be, to all sing it?!!!! Everyone I approached said yes and was just as excited as me!! I'm honored to have Dolly Parton, Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan, and Debbie Harry on this song!! “Gonna Be You” is that song you want to sing along to with all your good friends!!!”
The film is scheduled to be released on February 3, 2023.
