Tony Bennett confirms 'Cheek to Cheek' follow-up in the works

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga are ready to go cheek to cheek again!

The 89-year-old jazz legend confirmed that a follow-up to the duo's massively successful album Cheek to Cheek is in the works! "We're doing an album. It's going to be all Cole Porter songs," Bennett told Vulture. "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."

Tony went on to praise Gaga's talent and added that he thinks she's going to have a big acting career.

"Gaga is a gorgeous singer, and when she sings a great ballad, I get goose bumps," he said. "We get along great. She's got a lot of talent. I think someday she's going to be very big in films, which I'm not too interested in. I work live, to audiences, but I think she's going to surprise everybody and make some good films."

But the new jazz album is not the only new music Gaga is working on at the moment. Mother Monster is also busy recording a brand new pop album, which is due out next year.

"I love balancing [jazz and pop], I basically have multiple personalities anyway (shocking reveal!) so that rebellious and extreme side of me loves to go back and forth, I never get bored," Gaga said in an exclusive Q&A with Gaga Daily. "Somedays I feel quiet, others I need to rage. Those parts of me will always be there, it's my two-toned soul. Cheek to Cheek will not be my last jazz album, and ARTPOP was not my last pop album. I have many years ahead of me to make music and I feel stronger than ever, like I did when I first moved to Hollywood to make it. I'm a fighter again. Put me in the ring. Ring the bell, I'm ready life!"
