Dolly Parton to release a ‘dance’ album

Moon and Stars music festivalDolly Parton has renewed her desire to release a dance album “at some point” soon, stating that she has recorded “several songs that are very positive towards the gay community”.

“I would like to do a dance record,” the country legend confirmed at a press conference last week. “I have a song called Just a Wee Bit Gay. It’s a great little dance tune – it’s funny and it’s got a lot of comic in it. I do write a lot of songs along those lines with people that are different and are just themselves.”

It won’t be Parton’s first foray onto the dancefloor. Versions of Baby I’m Burning, from 1978, and Peace Train, from 1997, were both club hits. 1999′s remix-packed Walking On Sunshine EP wasn’t quite so successful, failing to make any kind of chart splash.

In the UK, Parton is currently enjoying some of the most loving attention of her five-decade career. Boosted by a performance at this year’s Glastonbury festival, the 68-year-old’s new best-of compilation, Blue Smoke, is currently at No 3 on the official albums chart.
