Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett Discuss New Duets Album On Red CarpetIconic crooner Tony Bennett teams up with chart-topping pop superstar Lady Gaga for a new duets album containing multiple Great American Songbook standards and the performers discuss the new project in a new red carpet video interview.

Earlier this week, Gaga released a short clip of herself onstage singing the incomparable Richard Rodgers/Lorenz Hart staple "Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered" from PAL JOEY, and today a video of the two performing the Cole Porter staple "Anything Goes" was released, as well.

"This is a real collaboration, this album - we've been working on it for two years together," Gaga relates.

"It's just the two of us together - it's exactly what the album is called, it's CHEEK TO CHEEK," Gaga shares.

Additionally, Gaga reveals, "When we sing together, I say: 'There's 60 years between us, but when we sing there's no distance'."

Additionally, Bennett opines, "She's a natural, you know - she sings the way I sing. I mean, we change every night - it might be the same song, but we turn it around and do something new with it every night; make it a little different."

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.
