DOLLY PARTON TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘SACRIFICE’ FROM HER ACCLAIMED “BETTER DAY" ALBUM
SECOND LEG OF U.S. DATES KICKED OFF OCTOBER 7 WILL RETURN TO SILVER SCREEN IN ‘JOYFUL NOISE’ IN JANUARY
Iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist DOLLY PARTON is set to release “Sacrifice,” the second single from her critically acclaimed latest album BETTER DAY (Dolly Records, distributed through Warner Music Nashville). The new single coincides with a second leg of U.S. tour dates, which kicked off this past Friday, October 7 and wraps October 18 in Florida.
Of the new song, DOLLY says, “’The Sacrifice’ is another song that is just so, totally, me. I think it’s so totally everybody that has a dream and desire to be successful, and in order to be successful we have to give up things that we’d rather not. But if we’re not willing to make that sacrifice usually we don’t see those dreams come true.”
BETTER DAY marks the fourth release on her own Dolly Records and her first studio album ever to reach the top 10 in the U.K., where she recently performed a pair of shows (September 7 and 8) at the O2 Arena in London. That’s the same venue where DOLLY recorded and filmed Live From London (Dolly Records), her widely praised 2009 two-disc DVD/CD set that included songs from her 2008 Backwoods Barbie album alongside her many classic hits.
DOLLY’s fall U.S. dates kicked off Friday, October 7 in Cedar Park, TX and will continue through mid-October before she heads to Australia in November for a run of dates.
In other DOLLY news, she will return to the silver screen alongside Queen Latifah in Joyful Noise (Warner Bros. Pictures), a musically driven feature that tells the story of an unlikely partnership between two strong-minded women who are forced to work together to save a small town Gospel choir after budget cuts threaten to shut them down.“Joyful Noise will also feature musical contributions from DOLLY. This marks DOLLY’s return to movies, having starred in Steel Magnolias, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and the Academy Award-nominated 9-5.
