New jazz album by Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett coming out this year!

Legendary jazz singer Tony Bennett confirmed during his show in Idaho today that he is releasing another jazz album with Lady Gaga! It will be a follow-up to their very successful "Cheek To Cheek" album which earned the top spot in Billboard Hot 200 chart and won a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Album in 2015.

 

Tony added that the new collaborative album will be released on August 3rd to celebrate his 90th birthday. The album is expected to include collections of Cole Porter songs, according to Tony during an interview with Vulture last year. "We're doing an album. It's going to be all Cole Porter songs. He was the best writer of all of them in the Great American Songbook. Highly intelligent. We're going to have a lot of fun doing that", he said.

 

Aside from the new jazz album, Lady Gaga is also busy recording new songs for her new upcoming pop album which is also scheduled for release this year. She's currently working with pop music producers such as Mark Ronson and RedOne.
