Dolly Parton and Kelly Clarkson have worked '9 to 5' to bring us a new cover of the iconic song!

The two country music queens have rerecorded the 1980 hit to be featured in the upcoming documentary, Still Working 9 To 5, which is set to hit theatres on September 16.

And a snippet of the song can be heard in the new trailer for the film (listen above).

The duo have put a new twist on the optimistic old-school classic, which quickly became a pop-culture feminist anthem with its high-energy melody.

"Dolly's original version was very upbeat. There was a lot of hope I would say in the song," shared co-director Camille Hardman.

"And this version is just a little bit melancholic ... [It's] definitely slowed down and more haunting ... It's really mind-blowing."

The highly anticipated film will feature exclusive interviews with the 'Jolene' singer, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dabney Coleman as they discuss the legacy of the groundbreaking film.

An official description for Still Working 9 To 5 states the documentary "examines the 40-year evolution of gender inequality and discrimination in the workplace since the 1980 release of the classic seminal comedy, 9 to 5."

We can't wait to hear the full song!
