Dolly Parton has teamed up with the Bee Gees' Barry Gibb.

The 74-year-old country icon is featured on a new duet version of the disco band's 1968 hit "Words" alongside Gibb, also 74.

The tune will be featured on the album "Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers' Songbook, Vol. 1," due for release on Jan. 8.

Gibb released a "visualizer" last week to accompany the single, which features various shots of trains and train tracks.
