Country music queen Dolly Parton is back with a new album, her 42nd in almost 50 years in the business. Called Blue Smoke and out May 13, it’s a collection of all the varying sounds and styles the Country Hall of Famer has dabbled in over the years, from bluegrass to gospel and straight-up country.
You can listen to the new album below until May 12, and be sure to check back on Wednesday for our interview with Parton, who spoke about the new album, singing duets with both Kenny Rogers and Willie Nelson and why she included an Appalachian murder ballad.
Pre-order Blue Smoke on iTunes.
