UPDATE: Dolly Parton, Galantis and Mr. Probz turn a bad situation (a broken down bus) into a reason to dance in their “Faith” video. Check it out below.

Something magical happens with legendary divas take to the dance floor. (See Cher’s “Believe” as Exhibit A). It not only appeals to existing fans, but also introduces the artist to a whole new audience. That’s sure to be the case for Dolly Parton’s new collaboration. The country icon has dabbled in dance before — those “Peace Train” remixes are still played in gay bars the world over — but she has never been a part of something as contemporary sounding as Galantis and Mr. Probz’ “Faith.” This is clubland 2019 with a splash of twang and gospel.

“Know the road gets hard and you just want to leave, I ain’t never too far,” Mr. Probz begins the song. “So have a little faith in me.” Dolly then joins him for the heavily-distorted chorus, before shining in her own right. “When you don’t know who you are, I will find you so easily,” she belts. “Don’t you worry, whenever you need me — have a little faith in me.” That leads us to the goosebump-inducing finale. “Let me shine and radiate with your love and light, and help me make any change I can in the world today,” the 73-year-old begs Him. “Just show me the way.”

“Faith” cleverly interpolates John Hiatt’s “Have A Little Faith In Me,” transforming it into something new entirely. The euphoric anthem is the latest single from Galantis’ just-announced third LP, Church (due early 2020). “I was on the phone with a Christian [i.e. Christian Karlsson, one half of production duo], talking about a song called ‘Faith’ and an album called Church,” Dolly says of the surprise collaboration. “I knew I was in the right place.” Listen below.
