This November, Randall Poster — a veteran music supervisor responsible for the soundtracks of dozens of bleeding-edge indies (Spring Breakers, The Royal Tenenbaums) and blockbusters alike (The Hangover, Meet the Parents, Zoolander) — helms Divided & United, a double album of Civil War-era songs brought to modern day with help from the likes Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Lee Ann Womack, and more.

The collection will feature the Old South classic “Dixie,” as rendered by the redheaded redcoat Karen Elson – and you can hear it exclusively here. The singer and model handles the lead vocals on the track, while country duo the Secret Sisters — a.k.a. Laura and Lyrdia Rogers — pitch in for the harmony.

Take a listen to the song below:
