Sir Elton John and Dolly Parton have written and released a song. Dolly, 77, and Elton, 75, have collaborated on a rendition of “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me,” a classic song released by Elton in 1974, of which Dolly is a huge fan.
They intend to release the cover later this year. Dolly Parton is, after all, an LGBTQ icon, and Elton John is a huge fan, according to a source who spoke to The Sun’s Bizarre column. When he learned that she was interested in working with him, he jumped at the chance.
This song will appear on Dolly’s next rock and roll album, including cover versions of some of Dolly’s greatest hits. Dolly announced in December that she had recreated Elton’s iconic song for the album, but she had enlisted his help. She said she had sent a note asking him to sing with her and play the piano on it. She would greatly appreciate it.
Dolly, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the year before its current incarnation, stated that she wanted to “earn” her spot on the list. She went on to say that she is currently writing several brand-new rock songs. She has been putting in some time here and there to work on it over the past few months since she was informed that she would be taking part in the entire thing.
She had the impression she would have to work for it. As a result, the time to act is now. After all, she isn’t looking for token recognition. Parton even revealed that she is putting the finishing touches on that album, which she hopes to release the following autumn, just in time for the holiday season. As a result, she will be performing many classic rock songs, as well as a couple of songs I’ve written.
It is not the first time the two have collaborated.
Parton performed “Turn the Lights Out When You Leave” with John at the 2005 CMA Awards.
