Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett Announce Jazz Album, ‘Cheek to Cheek’

Gaga and Bennett

Whatever your opinion on Lady Gaga‘s music and persona, the girl can sing. And although his once-tight vibratto is starting to loosen, there is a reason Tony Bennett is known world over for his jazz crooning. The unlikely pairing announced on The Today Show that they’ve combined efforts and produced a jazz album, entitled Cheek to Cheek, that will be released on September 23.

To accompany the announcement, Lady Gaga released a video on her official YouTube channel titled “Anything Goes,” a sampling of their rendition of the Cole Porter number with a montage of the two generally having a good time in the studio; Bennett in suits and Gaga in a number of Cher-inspired numbers. More than anything she’s released yet, Gaga really shows off her vocal chops. Bennett would agree:

“She sings so wonderful and she’s actually really a great jazz singer,” he said. “She improvises every time we do a song. We do it over and over and it’s different every time.”
