Dolly and Sia Here I Am

Dolly Parton and Sia have teamed up for a new rendition of Parton’s 1971 song “Here I Am”. The tune appears on the soundtrack for Netflix’s Dumplin’. 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. 

Parton leads-off the moving duet, before Sia comes in for the opening verses. Their voices weld together, giving it a hymnal quality, buoyed by gospel-styled choir backing vocals. As well as working with Sia, Parton has also partnered with Alison Krauss, Miley Cyrus, and the film’s stars, Jennifer Aniston and Danielle Macdonald, on the soundtrack. 

Dolly has said of the single “Well I sure am proud to share the first single from the Dumplin’ soundtrack with y’all! I re-recorded “Here I Am” with the incredible Sia and I sure do hope you love it. Just click to the link to listen to the whole song”. 

Dumplin'

Directed by Anne Fletcher, the film Dumplin’ is based on Julie Murphy’s book of the same name about a plus-size teenage daughter (Macdonald) of a former beauty queen (Aniston) who is inspired by Dolly Parton’s music. Dumplin’ is released in November this year, with the soundtrack released through Dolly Records/RCA Nashville.
