Lady Gaga Pens Passionate Cole Porter Historical Dedication
Modern music royalty Tony Bennett teams up with chart-topping pop icon Lady Gaga for a new duets album containing multiple American Songbook standards, including the recent #1 iTunes Jazz chart-topping single of the Cole Porter musical theatre classic "Anything Goes", and Gaga shares her passion for Cole porter in a new social media post now available to view.
Gaga writes, "For those monsters who wanna learn more about jazz I thought as the song come out I'd tell you about them. Anything Goes was written by Cole Porter in 1934, Cole Porter was and is widely known as one of the greatest jazz lyricists ever. 'I Can't Give You Anything But Love' was Written by Jimmy McHugh (music) + Dorothy Fields (lyrics) in 1929, both songs are on Cheek To Cheek. You can find many versions of these songs online, but the best way is to buy vinyl. Much is not available digitally. And the Crackle IS :-)".
CHEEK TO CHEEK is set to be released on September 23.
Of note, Bennett and Gaga previously collaborated on a duet of the classic "The Lady Is A Tramp" for Bennett's bestselling DUETS II album. New footage of that recording session was recently released and it was covered in a BroadwayWorld article here.
