Parton, who serves as the soundtrack’s executive producer, contributed six new compositions, which were co-written and co-produced by Linda Perry. The soundtrack will also feature newly recorded collaborations of some of Parton’s previously released classic songs.

One such tune is “Here I Am” – which originally appeared on Parton’s 1971 LP, Coat of Many Colors. Parton leads-off the moving duet, before Sia comes in for the opening verses. Their voices meld together, giving it a hymnal quality, buoyed by gospel-styled choir backing vocals.
