Dolly Parton Reveals The Cover & Tracklist Of New LP ‘Pure & Simple’
Dolly Parton unveiled the cover and tracklist of 43rd studio LP Pure & Simple earlier today (July 7). The album, which arrives on August 19, is comprised of 12 new songs and a bonus disc containing her hit-filled 2014 live set at Glastonbury. “I may not be pure, but I’m as simple as they come!” the 70-year-old says of the release. “This new Pure & Simple project is really special to me because I’m taking my fans back to my roots.”
“I feel like these songs have a pure, tender side and we didn’t go overboard with arrangements,” she continues. “I’m so glad we’ve teamed up with our friends at Sony to get this album out to the fans.” The feeling is mutual. “Dolly Parton is a national treasure and an iconic singer/songwriter,” Sony Music CEO Doug Morris said in a statement. “We are very proud to call her a member of the Sony Music family.” See the tracklist below.
