Tony Bennett talks second Lady Gaga album collaboration

SHARE Tony Bennett talks second Lady Gaga album collaboration

The one and only Tony Bennett tells Vulture that he and Lady Gaga areheaded back to the recording studio together.

Talking about his latest album, the super-hot “The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern,” Bennett had nothing but high praise for Gaga:

Gaga is a gorgeous singer, and when she sings a great ballad, I get goose bumps. … Yeah, we’re doing an album. It’s going to be all Cole Porter songs. He was the best writer of all of them in the Great American Songbook. Highly intelligent. We’re going to have a lot of fun doing that.

Bennett and Gaga topped the chart with their CD “Cheek to Cheek” last year, also winning the Grammy for best traditional pop vocal album for their efforts. The dynamic duo played two sold-out shows at Ravinia this summer, becoming the fastest-selling, sold-out shows in the venue’s history.

As for what keeps Bennett going strong after six decades in the music business? He told Vulture:

I’m just blessed that at the right time, at least 30 years ago, I started feeling good about taking care of myself, making sure I had proper rest. I’m just blessed that at the right time, at least 30 years ago, I started feeling good about taking care of myself, making sure I had proper rest.
