Lady Gaga Recording With Tony Bennett This June
Tony Bennett just said that he and Lady Gaga have their big swing album mapped out on paper. Now, he has revealed that the May-December duo will execute their plans in the studio after she recovers from the hip surgery that forced a premature end of the American leg of the Born This Way Ball tour. The two plan to hit the studio in June to put music to tape.
"We're working on it from now until June, and then we'll record in June. She's phenomenal," the crooner said. "I get along great with her. She's looking forward to it and so am I." Could he be any more adorbs? We bet that Gaga just wants to stuff him into her pocket and carry him around with her.
Gaga and Bennett will hit a studio in Astoria, Queens to create their album. "Once you have an idea, then you go for it," Bennett said.
That's Gaga's mantra, that's for sure. She has found a kindred spirit in Bennett.
Gaga and Tony sorta have to work together, and not just because their rendition of 'The Lady Is a Tramp' was so fierce. They are both Italians – with Bennett's real name being Benedetto. We think Papa Joe Germanotta needs to cook up a meal or 10 for Bennett at the family's Joanne Trattoria while he records with Gaga.
A producer has not yet been revealed for the collaborative effort.
