Dolly Parton will release her new album, Blue Smoke, in New Zealand and Australia on January 31, 2014 through a partnership with her own Dolly Records and Sony Masterworks. The release will coincide with her international Blue Smoke Tour which will hit New Zealand and Australia in February. The album will then be released in the United States and Europe in May 2014.
“We at Masterworks think that Blue Smoke sits with Dolly Parton’s very best recorded work, as global audiences will discover when she begins her world tour in January 2014,” Bogdan Roscic, President of Sony Masterworks, said. “We’re very happy to be associated with this great American music artist.”
Dolly’s Blue Smoke Tour will visit England, Ireland, Scotland, Denmark, Germany, Norway and Sweden in June and July 2014. She can be heard singing alongside Kenny Rogers in their new duet, “You Can’t Make Old Friends.”
