The song speaks about taking better care of the world. "What you gonna do when it all burns down? Fire, fire, burnin’ higher. Still got time to turn it all around…” she sings. 

"This is a song I felt very inspired to write," Dolly said in a statement released earlier this week.

"I think it speaks about everything and to everyone this day and time. I hope it is something that will touch you and maybe touch enough people to want to make a change for the better," said the singer who was recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. 

In another interview with Rachel Ray on WBNX-TV 55 in January, Parton revealed that she worked with several big stars on the upcoming album. 

"I thought if I'm ever going to do a rock & roll album which I often dreamed someday I might, that the time is now," she said.  

"So, I reached out to a lot of the friends who were on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with me when we were there those few days rehearsing." 

The new album will feature the likes of Miley Cyrus, P!nk, and Elton John. 

It comes out in November.
