Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton have reteamed in the studio for a new track.

The couple hit the top of the charts with Islands in the Stream in 1983 and now Rogers and Parton are hoping for another smash with You Can’t Make Old Friends, the title track on The Gambler singer’s new album.

Rogers says, “What a thrill it was for me to work again with my buddy, Dolly Parton, and what a special song. Working with Dolly is always a little like going home. Everything felt comfortable.”

The new album, which is released in October, will be Rogers’ first since Water & Bridges in 2006.

He adds, “I can honestly say this may be the best album I’ve ever recorded. The musical diversity is extraordinary. It goes from songs I would normally sing, to songs I would normally never even listen to. In this business, you do albums to both grow artistically, and for the sheer love of music. We chose what I think are the most diverse and best songs I’ve ever had access to.”
