In partnership with Sony Records, country music stalwart Dolly Parton has unveiled the track listing and album cover for her upcoming project Pure & Simple. The singer’s latest studio album, which will be released via Dolly Records/RCA Nashville, will feature more stripped-down instrumentation and vocals and drops August 19. Parton will also be embarking on a five month North American tour this month in support of the new album.

“I may not be pure, but I’m as simple as they come!” says Parton. “This new Pure & Simple project is really special to me because I’m taking my fans back to my roots. I feel like these songs have a pure, tender side and we didn’t go overboard with arrangements.”
