UPDATE WEDS OCT 22: I’m told the Tony Bennett – Lady Gaga sequel album will be all Cole Porter songs. Why not ? Also hearing that Gaga is planning some kind of all-piano album….
OCT 9TH ORIGINAL STORY: Don’t stop til you get enough! Superstar 88 year old crooner Tony Bennett has plans for a second album with Lady Gaga. Their first one, “Cheek to Cheek,” debuted last week at number 1. It’s currently top 5 five everywhere in every format. When I congratulated Tony on the album’s success, he replied: “It’s terrific. But wait til you hear the next one. Plus, we’re going on tour soon. It’s going to be amazing!”
He’s right. The combination is dynamite. Through Bennett, Gaga has found a new voice– and some think it’s the one she was born to sing with. She was born this way! (Sorry.)
The Bennett- Gaga combo has done so well that Tony has suggested a movie project to the former meat dress wearer. He asked me not to reveal what it is, so I shan’t. But it’s a good idea. Anyway, maybe the next Bennett- Gaga recording will be on Tony’s label, Columbia. The first one is on Interscope.
Tony and Gaga’s PBS special airs October 24th, by the way.
