Dolly Parton announces new album

On 29 August 2011, Dolly Parton returns with a much-anticipated album of all-new studio material Better Day. Coinciding with a World tour that comes to the UK on 20 August, Better Day, released through Sony Music, is the follow-up to her critically acclaimed and successful Backwoods Barbie album in 2008.

The legendary singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist explained, “I wanted to do an album that would be very uplifting and positive, as well as inspirational” says the seven-time Grammy winner. “Times are hard all over. I think people need to feel better and I thought ‘Better Day’ was a perfect title because it says ‘hope’.”

The ‘Better Day’ world tour launched on 17 July in Knoxville in her home state of Tennessee and was highlighted by two shows (22 and 23 July) at the historic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Next, the tour moves overseas starting 20 August and will feature a pair of shows (7 and 8 September) at the O2 Arena in London.
