Country icon Dolly Parton has given her 1973 hit “Jolene” a rock twist, collaborating with Roman rock sensations Måneskin for the track featured on her newly released album, “Rockstar,” which dropped last Friday.

This marks the 77-year-old musical legend’s first foray into the rock genre. Parton shared a video from the recording studio, showcasing her evident satisfaction with the outcome of the collaboration.

Mick Jagger recently dubbed Måneskin, the 2021 Eurovision winners, as the greatest rock band globally. The band earned recognition at the MTV European Music Awards, securing two awards – Best Rock Band and Best Italian Act. Surpassing heavyweights like Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, and Foo Fighters, Måneskin’s victory in the Best Rock Band category adds to their growing list of achievements.

For the quartet – Damiano, Victoria, Thomas, and Ethan – success has been a constant companion since their breakthrough as runners-up on X Factor in 2017. Following their triumph at the Sanremo Song Festival and Eurovision Song Contest in 2021 with ‘Zitti e buoni,’ they continue to soar. The MTV Video Music Awards 2023 also recognized them as the Best Rock Band.

Originally street performers in Rome, Måneskin now enjoys a sold-out global tour and is gearing up for the release of an updated version of their latest album, “Rush! (Are U Coming?),” featuring the chart-topping hit “Honey (Are U Coming?).”
