NEW YORK, Oct. 2 (UPI) —
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s celebrated jazz album Cheek to Cheek debuted at No. 1 this week on the U.S. album chart, Interscope Records announced.
The collection of classic jazz standards — sung by Bennett and Lady Gaga in a combination of vocal duets and solo performances — was recorded in New York over the course of more than a year. Among the tracks are "Anything Goes," "It Don’t Mean a Thing [If It Ain’t Got That Swing]," "Sophisticated Lady," "Lush Life," and the record’s title track, "Cheek to Cheek."
"With the release of Cheek to Cheek, Bennett breaks his own record, set in 2011 when Duets II debuted at No. 1 [and he was] at the age of 85," Interscope said in a news release Wednesday. "Now at 88, Bennett remains the oldest artist in music industry history to have an album on the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts. Cheek to Cheek marks Lady Gaga’s third consecutive No. 1 album release in just over three years."
