Is that holiday bells we hear already?
Dolly Parton will ring in the Christmas season a few months early this year with the release of her first-holiday album in decades.
The album, titled A Holly Dolly Christmas, will be released on October 2, Billboard reported Wednesday.
Parton, 74, told the outlet that she wanted the album name to be “cute and clever” and was inspired by the classic “A Holly Jolly Christmas” by Burl Ives.
Parton worked with several other musicians for collaborations on the album, including crooner Michael Bublé for the first single, “Cuddle Up, Cozy Down Christmas.”
Jimmy Fallon will join Parton for a rendition of Mariah Carey’s iconic holiday hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You” — a decision inspired by an appearance on the host’s late-night show.
Willie Nelson, Billy Ray Cyrus and Miley Cyrus — Parton’s goddaughter — will also appear for duets with the country music star, according to Billboard.
Parton’s last holiday album, Home for Christmas, was released in 1990.
