Dolly Parton has released a new cover of the Beatles’ “Let It Be,” and the song features the two surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. The cover, also featuring guitar from Peter Frampton and additional percussion from Mick Fleetwood, serves as the latest single from Parton’s guest-packed, rock-devoted album Rockstar. Listen to “Let It Be” below.
In recent years, McCartney and Starr have collaborated on songs like “Here’s to the Nights” and “We’re on the Road Again.” McCartney also took part in a benefit show for Starr’s 80th birthday in 2020.
Parton started unrolling Rockstar a few months after she was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Parton had attempted to decline the invitation, claiming that she did not feel that she made music that was rock’n’roll enough to qualify for induction. She eventually walked back her statements before the November induction ceremony.
Rockstar is out November 17 and features Debbie Harry, Elton John, Stevie Nicks, Miley Cyrus, Sting, Melissa Etheridge, and more. “Let It Be” is the fifth single from the album, following “World on Fire,” “Magic Man (Carl Version),” “Bygones,” and “We Are the Champions/We Will Rock You.”
