Before Olivia Newton-John passed away from breast cancer in August 2022, she was collaborating with none other than Dolly Parton. The raw audio of these legends speaks for itself.

Their version of Parton’s hit ‘Jolene’ will be part of Newton-John’s last album that she recorded before her death, “Just the Two of Us: The Duets Collection,” was released with a music video on YouTube. In the video, Newton-John says that she “always wanted to sing with Dolly.”

The “9 to 5” singer said that her last memory with Newton-John was when they recorded “Jolene.”

The actress and singer was diagnosed with the disease in the ’90s and was in remission for more than 20 years before it returned in 2013. She revealed in 2018 that the disease had returned yet again and metastasized to her spine.

Along with her duet with Parton, “Just the Two of Us: The Duets Collection” will feature duets with Mariah Carey, Michael McDonald, John Travolta, Barry Gibb, Vanessa Amorosi, Jon Secada, her daughter Chloe Lattanzi and more.

The album will be released on May 5, 2023.
