New Dolly Parton collaboration with pop star Sia arrives tonight, as "Dumplin'" heads to Netflix

ABC/Lou RoccoDolly Parton's soundtrack for the new movie Dumplin' will include superstar collaborations on some of her biggest hits, as well as six new tunes co-written with super-producer Linda Perry.

Gospel and R&B legend Mavis Staples, young rocker Elle King, country singer Miranda Lambert and bluegrass stars Alison Krauss and Rhonda Vincent are just some of the guest vocalists who will join Parton on the album.

The first track, a rendition of Parton's 1971 tune "Here I Am," comes out at midnight ET tonight, and features pop star Sia, who just like Dolly, happens to be known for wearing a wig. The original version of "Here I Am" appeared on Parton's Coat of Many Colors album.

The Dumplin' Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is set to arrive on November 30, with the film scheduled to premiere on Netflix sometime this year. In the movie, Danielle Macdonald plays a plus-size teen who takes inspiration from Dolly's music, as she rebels against the beauty-pageant culture embraced by her mother.

Jennifer Aniston plays her mom and is one of the film's executive producers as well. Both Aniston and Macdonald appear on the soundtrack, too.
