Country star Dolly Parton has released a new song from her upcoming 'Rockstar' album.

The 77-year-old teamed up with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Mick Fleetwood, and Peter Frampton for a cover of the Beatles' iconic single, 'Let It Be'.

Paul and John Lennon wrote the 1970 classic for the band's album of the same name. 

"This song is really special to me because I’m joined by @paulmccartney who wrote the song, along with @ringostarrmusic, @mrpeterframpton and @mickfleetwoodofficial," Dolly wrote on Instagram.

The 'Jolene' hitmaker is gearing up for the release of her 49th studio album as a solo artist. 'Rockstar' is due for release on November 17. 

She was inspired to work on the album after being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame - against her wishes!

The 17-track album is Dolly's first-ever rock album. It features some of the biggest stars in rock music. Richard Sambora, Steven Tyler, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Kid Rock, Sheryl Crow, and Nikki Sixx all feature.

Other musicians such as Lizzo, P!nk, Elton John, Sting, Brandi Carlile, and Linda Perry also feature. Dolly's goddaughter Miley Cyrus also sings a new version of 'Wrecking Ball'. 

They performed the song together for the first time at Miley's New Year's Eve Party in 2022. 

"I'm so excited to finally present my first Rock and Roll album Rockstar! I am very honored and privileged to have worked with some of the greatest iconic singers and musicians of all time and to be able to sing all the iconic songs throughout the album was a joy beyond measure," Dolly wrote on her website in May 2023. 

Dolly has released four other promotional songs from the album, including the lead single, 'World on Fire'. 

She did a mash-up cover of Queen's 'We Are the Champions' and 'We Will Rock You".
