Iconic songstress Dolly Parton has unleashed dates for a world tour behind a forthcoming album entitled "Blue Smoke."

The Tennessee native will begin the journey stateside, with four late January dates on the West Coast. Parton then heads to New Zealand for the first time in three decades, followed by shows across Australia.

Another U.S. run kicks off May 22-23 in Catoosa, OK, and moves through four more markets, after which Parton heads to Europe for a month-long tour.

Parton is planning to reveal her 42th studio effort, "Blue Smoke," in the near future, though no official drop date has been released. Her most recent work, "Better Day," hit retailers in 2011, reaching No. 11 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and at the top of the album charts in Australia and the U.K.
