Tony Bennett says that he and Lady Gaga will finally record their jazz album this June, close to two years after they first teamed up for Bennett’s Duets II. “We’re working on [the album] from now until June, and then we’ll record in June. She’s phenomenal,” Bennett said to Rolling Stone.
Bennett and Gaga will record in Queens, N.Y., as Gaga continues to recover from the hip surgery that forced her to cancel her Born This Way Ball tour. The still-untitled jazz album will pick up from where Bennett and Lady Gaga left off with their remake of “The Lady is a Tramp,” from the 1937 musical Babes in Arms. According to Bennett, the Fame Monster’s father had actually called to propose the album on her behalf.
