Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett at Frank Sinatra School of Arts 6

Tony Bennett talks ‘Cheek to Cheek’, reveals new song title

Tony Bennett talked about his upcoming duet album with Lady Gaga, titled Cheek to Cheek, in a recent interview.

“I don’t understand why she makes contemporary music,” the 16-time Grammy winner said. “When she sings great standards, she does it with such emotion… 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!”

Tony added: “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.’”

Cheek to Cheek is set for release in September.
