On Bebe Rexha’s new single “Seasons,” Bebe and Dolly Parton explore the concept of aging while still maintaining a youthful spirit. Parton’s lyrics express the feeling of being a child inside despite what the mirror may show
“My mirror is a liar / Inside, I’m still a child / Who’s tryin’ to find her way back home / How come nobody warns us / About what’s coming for us / That you will live and die alone, Dolly sings. However, by the end of the track, both singers express hope for brighter days ahead.
“I lie awake inside a dream / And I run, run, run away from me / The seasons change right under my feet / I’m still the same, same, same, same old me.”
“Seasons” was the first song written for Rexha’s album, and she invited Parton to collaborate. To Rexha’s delight, the country music legend accepted, and the two artists discovered an immediate connection. The music video for the single features the two singers dressed in matching outfits, creating a mirrored effect with their blonde hair and the black-and-white color scheme.
Bebe Rexha’s third studio album dropped today, with 12 brand new songs and multiple high-profile collaborations.
Parton will also be co-hosting the 2023 ACM Awards alongside Garth Brooks and will close the show with the live debut of her new rock song.
Fans can watch Dolly Parton host and perform at the 2023 ACM Awards by livestream exclusively on Prime Video from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas on Thursday, May 11 at 8/7 p.m. CT.
