Dolly Parton has released a new version of an old favorite -- The Beatles classic hit, “Let It Be” -- with icons Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr featured on the track.
Parton wrote on Instagram, sharing the release Friday: “Does it get any better than singing “Let It Be” with @paulmccartney who wrote the song? Not only that, he played piano! Well, it did get even better when @ringostarrmusic joined in on drums, @mrpeterframpton on guitar and @mickfleetwoodofficial playing percussion. I mean, seriously, how much better does it get? Thanks guys! Go give it a listen 💗”
In the comments, McCartney wrote, “Thanks Dolly for doing my song. I love your version and am very pleased to be by your side on this one. Rock on! x”
Reactions to the new version were positive on Parton’s post.
