Dolly releases 43rd solo album, “Pure & Simple”
On August 19, 2016, Dolly Parton released her 43rd studio album, “Pure & Simple.” The project is a collection of love songs, which touch on what Dolly calls the “many colors of love.” In the title track, Dolly sings about a pure and simple love that’s comfortable and familiar. “Outside Your Door” has a passionate and intimate feel while “Head Over High Heels” is fun and flirty.
When Dolly and Carl Dean renewed their wedding vows in May of this year, Dolly penned a special song just for the occasion. “Forever Love” became their wedding song and Dolly sang it to Carl at the ceremony.
All songs were written by Dolly including “Pure & Simple” which sets the theme for the recording and the supporting tour visiting over 60 cities.
In addition to the new tracks on the album, two songs from Dolly’s duet days have been beautifully re-recorded – “Say Forever You’ll Be Mine” and “Tomorrow Is Forever.”
