    Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett - Cheek to Cheek (duet album)

    It'll be a busy holiday season for Tony Bennett. The seemingly ageless pop crooner, known for his timeless serenade to San Francisco, still is touring and his standard-setting Christmas albums continue selling every year.

    On Jan. 1, he's scheduled to add "Cheek to Cheek," a jazzy CD collaboration with Lady Gaga, to his career catalog.

    Bennett, 86, has experienced a career revival in the last 25 years, guided by son Danny - his manager since 1979 - and encompassing a newer and younger audience.

    That includes New York's Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, now known as Lady Gaga and Bennett's collaborator on "Cheek to Cheek." She also sang "The Lady Is a Tramp" with him on 2011's "Duets II" CD.

    d'oh, I forgot the extra t on Tony's name...if a mod could edit, that would be great. A legend deserves the proper spelling

    ^ I think you can change it yourself. I wonder if there will be any original songs on the album? Covers are fun though.

    First single from the album is "Anything Goes" and you can listen here:

    It's on iTunes, too. Haven't read anything about when the actual album is due.

    Her voice is so good and perfect for this genre! The song is great. Bring on the critical acclaim!

    That's some of the most bizarre, unfortunate Photoshop work I've ever seen. Their eyes even look painted in.

    Why the cover of the album is a picture of Cher and Hugh Hefner?

    She's really trying to channel Liza Minnelli, or is that just me? (edit: vocally, I mean.)

    Why do they insist on making her bone thin? She's a healthy-sized girl!
