Young Lady Gaga and her showbiz granddad Tony Bennett have released a sheet of details on their long-awaited shared LP, ‘Cheek To Cheek’. And here they are, posing ‘head quite near to head’. And here again, in a clasp I’m calling ‘chin to quiff’. And here again, clinching the ‘Cheek To Cheek’ stance finally.

Aaaanyway, the deal with ‘Cheek To Cheek’ is this; it’s being released on 22 Sep, and will feature the pair’s 2011 collaborative cover of Cole Porter’s ‘Anything Goes’, and some other songs of a similarly jazzy ilk.

Gaga, an original jazz baby who was raised on smoky songbook classics, says: “The collaboration has been so wonderful. It’s so natural singing with Tony. I just learn so much from him every day. I’m so happy”.

Tony B adds: “She sings so wonderful and she’s actually really a great jazz singer. She improvises every time we do a song. We do it over and over and it’s different every time”.

Wow, ain’t that a kick in the head. Watch Gaga and Tone promoting wild abandon in this ‘Anything Goes’ clip:
