Dolly Parton Covers ‘What’s Up?’ Feat. Linda Perry

Dolly Parton covered “What’s Up?” by Four Non-Blondes as part of her upcoming new album. The track features Linda Perry on guitar.

In a press release, the country music icon discussed the song:

“First of all, I love Linda Perry. Second of all, I love this song written by Linda. Third of all, I love being a part of this video to try to make people think about what’s going on in this world today. Shout out to the little children that helped with the video! If our children don’t make it, then what will? Again, I ask ‘What’s Up?’ Enjoy.”

Linda Perry also discussed the new version of her song in a press release:

“How is one supposed to react when the greatest and most prolific songwriter in the world wants to cover a song YOU wrote? Her version of ‘What’s Up?’ is so good. Her spin on it made me feel like it was her song. No surprise there. Being on set making the video was a comfortable easy experience. The vibe on set was chill and Dolly and I got to catch up and laugh a lot. I could go on and on, obviously I’m a fan!”
