Dolly Parton and Sia have teamed up for a new recording of ‘Here I Am’ which features on the forthcoming Dumplin’ movie soundtrack.

The song, which first appeared on Parton’s 1971 album ‘Coat of Many Colours’, sits alongside six new compositions co-written by Parton that were written specifically for the film.

Dumplin’ is an upcoming movie based on a young adult novel about a plus-size teenager who is obsessed with Dolly Parton.

The film, which stars Jennifer Aniston and Danielle Macdonald, will arrive on Nexflix later this year with the accompanying soundtrack set for release in November.

As well as co-writing new compositions for the film with Linda Perry, Parton also re-recorded some of her most popular songs in duets with Sia, Miranda Lambert, Mavis Staples, Elle King, Alison Krauss, and Rhonda Vincent (via Billboard).

A scripted anthology series based on Parton’s songs is also in development with Netflix.

In other recent news, Sia claims she got a nasty bout of “crazy diarrhoea” after meeting Donald Trump during their appearance on Saturday Night Live.

Dumplin’ soundtrack is released on November 30 via Dolly Records/RCA Nashville.
