Dolly Parton‘s new rock album, Rockstar, is out next month, and so far she’s shared a version of the Beatles’ “Let It Be” with help from Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Peter Frampton, and Mick Fleetwood, 4 Non Blonde’s “What’s Up?” with Linda Perry, and “World on Fire.” Today (Oct. 20), Parton unveiled her collaboration with her goddaughter, Miley Cyrus, on the latter’s “Wrecking Ball” from the 2013 Bangerz album. The duo debuted the song on Cyrus’ New Year’s Eve Party TV special last year.

“When I heard ‘Wrecking Ball’ I almost wept in my car,” Parton said. “When it started into the chorus it hit me like a wrecking ball! I thought how great can a song be and how great can Miley Cyrus be? I thought, I have to have that song on my rock album and I have to have Miley sing it with me! I love it and I hope you do!”

ROCKSTAR is out on Nov. 17 through Butterfly Records. Among the other special guests are Lizzo, Stevie Nicks, Brandi Carlile, Sting, former Journey frontman Steve Perry, and Elton John.
