19 September 2017, 10:25

Country legend Dolly Parton is releasing her first ever children's album, 50 years since her debut.

The 14-track record will be titled I Believe In You, and will be released as part of Parton's non-profit literacy organisation Imagination Library.

The 71-year-old singer has said all proceeds from album sales will be used to buy books for children from birth to five years old.

"It's been 20 years since the Imagination Library was launched," Parton said.

"We've seen 100 million books get into the hands of children and hopefully there will be many more."

This year marks half a century since her debut as a country singer in the 1967 album Hello, I'm Dolly.

"My first album was released 50 years ago and it's been an amazing 50 years since then.

"I am very excited that now I'm coming out with my first children's album in all of those 50 years."

I Believe In You will be released in the UK on 13 October.
