The 1971 original, which appeared on Parton’s "Coat of Many Colors" album, is a more country-pop sound from the decade. The new version is mostly piano driven and replaces fiddles and country instrumentation with a more somber gospel sound.

Sia appears on the second verse of the song, also joining Parton on the chorus.

Variety reported that Perry and Parton revealed as the Music Biz conference in Nashville that Miranda Lambert and Miley Cyrus are also on the soundtrack, as well as actress Jennifer Anisoton who appears in the film.

Netflix announced it acquired "Duplin’" Wednesday. It tells the story of Dumplin, a plus-size teenage daughter of a former beauty queen -- played by Danielle Macdonald, who signs up for her mother’s pageant in protest, drawing others to follow and rattling a small Texas town. Aniston plays Dumplin’s mother.
