The pair originally teamed on a recording of "The Lady Is a Tramp" for Bennett's 2011 Grammy Award-winning album, Duets II. The multi-Grammy winning pair sang the song during Gaga's 2011 Thanksgiving special and--most recently--made a surprise appearance together at a New York's Frank Sinatra School of the Arts.
The controversial pop-diva-turned-jazz-chanteuse and the veteran crooner announced the official album release date Tuesday, on NBC TV's "Today." The album will consist of jazz standards, and is set to include classics such as "Sophisticated Lady" "Lush Life," and "It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)."
Gaga also unveiled the first track and video from the album--a cover of Cole Porter's "Anything Goes." Speaking about the video, Gaga tweeted: "'Anything Goes' video of Tony Bennett and me recording LIVE with the band. No autotune. No tricks. Pure Jazz."
The 28-year-old singer-songwriter is currently wrapping up the North American leg of her Lady Gaga artRave: The ArtPop Ball Tour, and has been rehearsing in New York ahead of a scheduled live TV taping with the veteran crooner; the special will air Fri., Oct. 24, 2014 as part of PBS' Great Performances series.
