Leave it to Dolly Parton to revive The Beatles — like never before.

The recent  Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee has reunited the two living members of the Fab Four for her rendition of the band’s 1970 hit “Let It Be.” Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr joined Parton on a new recording from her upcoming album “Rockstar,” which is set to be released in full Nov. 17. which was released Friday. Fellow legendary rockers Peter Frampton and Mick Fleetwood also appear on the track.

Parton has been slowly sharing songs from the star-studded album since it was first announced in early May. On Friday, Parton took to social media to promote her latest release.

“Does it get any better than singing ‘Let It Be’ with @paulmccartney who wrote the song?,” she captioned a behind-the-scenes video. “Not only that, he played piano! Well, it did get even better when @ringostarrmusic joined in on drums, @mrpeterframpton on guitar and @mickfleetwoodofficial playing percussion.”

McCartney, himself, shared similar sentiments in the comments section of the song on YouTube.

“Thanks Dolly for doing my song. I love your version and am very pleased to be by your side on this one. Rock on ! Love Paul x,” he wrote on Friday.

“Let It Be” follows last month’s release of Parton’s cover of Queen’s “We Are the Champions/We Will Rock You.”

In June, the country music superstar served up her version of Heart’s 1975 classic “Magic Man,” featuring original group member Ann Wilson, along with the original track “Bygones,” featuring Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford with Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx and John 5.

Parton released the album’s first single, “World on Fire,” in May.

With a jam-packed 30 tracks, “Rockstar” will also feature powerhouse collaborations with Lizzo, Sting, Elton John, Pink, Brandi Carlile and Parton’s famous goddaughter, Miley Cyrus.
