Looks like we are leaving Chromatica and going to a whole other style.
In 2014, Lady Gaga and icon Tony Bennett released Cheek to Cheek, their much-lauded collaborative album. It was a product of having built a friendship together since 2011, with Gaga as a protege of sorts. It was a true hit, landing at number 1 on Billboard's Top 200 pop and rock charts, and was followed by a tour. Now, according to AARP, the two are ready to do a follow-up.
“The fact that Tony sees me as a natural-born jazz singer is still something that I haven't gotten over,” Gaga told the site in a feature on Bennett who was opening up about having Alzheimers. According to the feature, the pair worked on the follow-up album from 2018 to early 2020 but it was put on the backburner as Gaga became somewhat of a Hollywood darling with A Star Is Born. Now, this new project may likely be Bennett's last.
According to the story, there is documentary footage of the recording. It is not immediately clear whether that footage will be released. In the footage, Gaga makes short simple comments while in the studio, which is advised when interacting with someone who suffers from Alzheimer's. The writer remarked on the pain evident in her face. But when Bennett begins to sing a solo passage of a love song "Gaga looks on, from behind her mic, her smile breaking into a quiver, her eyes brimming, before she puts her hands over her face and sobs."
There has been no date or name announced for the project.
