DOLLY PARTON’s BETTER DAY now has a June 28 release date set in stone. Her much-anticipated album of all-new studio material will be released on her own Dolly Records distributed through Warner Music Nashville. To coincide with the album’s release, DOLLY will launch a world tour bringing her throughout America and then onto the U.K. and Europe in August and September, then Australia in November in support of the new album. BETTER DAY is the follow-up to DOLLY’s critically acclaimed and successful 2008 Backwoods Barbie album. Featuring 12 original DOLLY compositions, BETTER DAY marks the fourth release on the independent label.
First up, the iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist will unveil the album’s soaring first single “Together You & I” with a live performance now airing Friday, May 27 on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” as the song simultaneously arrives at radio. The song’s video–shot this week in Nashville by director Trey Fanjoy–will debut shortly thereafter.
On the live front, the “BETTER DAY” world tour launches July 17 in Knoxville in her home state of Tennessee and will be highlighted by two shows (July 22 and 23) at the historic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. After wrapping in the U.S. August 3, the tour moves overseas starting August 20 and will feature a pair of shows (September 7 and 8) at the O2 Arena in London, the venue where DOLLY recorded and filmed Live From London (Dolly Records), her widely praised 2009 two-disc DVD/CD set that included songs from Backwoods Barbie alongside her many classic hits.
