Lady Gaga confirms Tony Bennett single and album

Lady Gaga has revealed details about her forthcoming Tony Bennett album.

The singers will release the collaborative record 'Cheek to Cheek' later this year.

It will be preceded by the single 'Anything Goes', which will be released in the UK on July 30.

A live concert called Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek LIVE! that was filmed in New York on Monday (July 28) will air on in the US on October 24.

Bennett commented: "The reason I chose to do [this project] with her is to show how wonderful she really sings. She's so uninhibited and talented, and has a wonderful talent of knowing how to improvise very well. She's really a great American singer."

Gaga added: "There might be 60 years between me and Tony, but there's no distance between us when we sing jazz. He calls me 'Lady,' and when I walk in the room, he stands up and so do all his friends.

"It's really of another time, and I hope with this music we can bring back that sentiment of love, kindness and joy that I'm getting to experience working with him every day. I just want to spread that around the world."

The two singers have sporadically worked together over the last few years and they previously recorded a cover of 'The Lady is a Tramp'.
