Dolly Parton and Sia have something new in common — besides their music success and love of wigs, of course.

The two chart-topping singers have joined forces for the inspirational duet “Here I Am,” which dropped late Thursday night.

“Here I am, I’m reaching out to give you love that you’re without, I can help you find what you’ve been searching for,” they sing in the song’s chorus, backed by a gospel choir. “Here I am, come to me, take my hand because I believe, I can give you all the love you need and more.”

Produced by 4 Non Blondes alum Linda Perry (Christina Aguilera‘s “Beautiful,” Pink‘s “Get This Party Started”), the song was written by Parton and originally released on her 1971 Coat of Many Colors film soundtrack.

Sia joined Parton on the newly recorded version of the song, this time for the soundtrack to Netflix’s upcoming film Dumplin’ — which is expected out later this year.

Based on the novel by Julie MurphyDumplin’ follows the plus-size teenage daughter of a former beauty queen who is inspired by Parton’s music. The film stars Jennifer Aniston and Patti Cake$‘ star Danielle Macdonald.
