The track appears on the new album "Peaceful Easy Feeling – The Songs of Jack Tempchin."

Eagles songwriter Jack Tempchin has teamed up with Rita Coolidge for a duet of his classic hit "Slow Dancing," which he wrote more than 40 years ago. 

The song arrives with a music video, which Billboard is exclusively premiering below, showing couples of all ages "swayin' to the music," just as the lyrics suggest.

Watch it here:

"Slow Dancing" was first released by Tempchin's band the Funky Kings on their 1976 self-titled album. The next year, Johnny Rivers released a version under the title "Swayin' to the Music (Slow Dancin')" that went gold. Olivia Newton-John, Unicorn and many others have also famously released covers.

The song is from Tempchin's new album Peaceful Easy Feeling – The Songs of Jack Tempchin and is available for instant-grat download with pre-orders of the project.

The album is out Aug. 25 and pays tribute to Tempchin's late songwriting partner and friend Glenn Frey, with Tempchin's own versions of a dozen popular tracks.
