There is no one like Dolly Parton. The country icon just radiates 100% positivity and joy – and whilst many artists dropping lockdown tracks have us slightly cynical, Dolly is an artist who delivers one with warmth and conviction on new release When Life Is Good Again.
The track encourages us to think about how we will emerge from the coronavirus pandemic, as the country icon croons “When life is good again, I’ll be a better friend,” “I’ll open up my heart and let the whole world in,” and “Let’s open up our hearts and let the love shine in.” Dolly is already a pure soul and we don’t imagine she needs to change her behaviour post-lockdown, but it is a heartwarming message and one that encourages us to reflect on our own attitudes and behaviours.
When Life Is Good Again is accompanied by a subtle video of Dolly revisiting reels from a video projector, interlaced with shots of the key workers that have kept the world rolling through the pandemic. Watch the video below:
