Lady Gaga is very proud of her new duet album with legendary crooner Tony Bennett, and even goes as far as saying that it's her most important album to date. 'Cheek to Cheek,' was just released on Sept. 19.

While speaking with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, Gaga said, “I feel so humbled to be doing this project with him. This is, for me, the most important album I’ve ever made.”

Most important album ever made? That's high praise considering how big 'The Fame,' The Fame Monster,' 'Born This Way' and 'Art Pop' were.

In regards to working with Bennett, she remarked, “I just was shaking in my boots, really. I tell everyone that I kept a whiskey underneath my stool when I was recording with him in the studio because I was so nervous."

'Cheek to Cheek' pairs Gaga and Bennett together to sing several classic jazz duets, including Cole Porter's 'Anything Goes' and Irving Berlin's 'Cheek to Cheek.'
