Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will be recording an album together.
The Mother Monster, who recorded a duet with the legendary singer last year, announced today on Twitter that she was working on an album with Bennett.
Lady Gaga posted a photo of Bennett on Twitter and wrote:
“And here’s me and my handsome date, I simply cannot wait for our album together, he’s my darling!”
The pop singer recorded “The Lady Is a Tramp” in 2011 for the album Tony Bennett: Duets II. The two singers apparently got a long great (Bennett even painted Gaga in the nude) and have been planning to do an entire album together.
“She’s the biggest. I’ll tell you, I never met anyone with more talent than that lady.”
The album was rumored last year but was quickly forgotten about when Lady Gaga started working on her ArtPop album. Well, it looks like the two sings haven’t forgotten about it.
There’s no word on a release date yet or what type of songs will be on the album. Are you hoping for Bennett classics? Or maybe some new original material?
And here’s me and my handsome date, I simply cannot wait for our album together, he’s my darling! twitter.com/ladygaga/statu…
