During a recent interview with LaPress,Bennett, Bennett spoke about his upcoming jazz album with Lady Gagaand shared that the record will feature both covers and original songs sung by them together and seperately.
"I don't understand why she makes contemporary music! When she sings great standards, she does it with such emotion." said the legendary crooner. "She will surprise people by the quality of her voice when making quality songs. We sing covers together on the album, but also separately. There are also some original songs, including one she wrote called Paradise. With this album, I think she will become bigger than Elvis Presley! Of course we recorded the album in New York. As the song says: "If you can make it in New York, you'll make it anywhere".
According to Interscope Records, the album is scheduled to hit stores later in 2014.
