Kelly Clarkson and Dolly Parton have just announced the release date for their highly-anticipated, reimagined duet version of “9 to 5” – available to buy/stream on Friday, September 9th. The haunting, modern take on the classic song was expertly produced by Shane McAnally, Sasha Alex Sloan, and King Henry, recorded for the new documentary, Still Working 9 to 5.
“…the reimagined ‘9 to 5’ opens with the strains of an organ paired with Parton’s ethereal singing of the title phrase. Clarkson takes the lead vocal, joined by percussive loops and Parton’s gentle harmonies on the chorus, as the reconfigured melody begins to move along at a slightly quicker pace.” – ROLLING STONE
Still Working 9 to 5, spanning over 40 years of the working women’s movement, focuses on workplace inequality and the ongoing fight for equal pay.
Kelly Clarkson and Dolly Parton chose to announce their duet’s release date today, in an effort to honor and spotlight Women’s Equality Day.
