Video Premiere: Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett - 'Anything Goes'...

Eccentric chanteuse Lady Gaga swaps her electro-charged pop melodies for the Great American Songbook, hooking up with Tony Bennett for a joint album of jazz standards. 'Cheek to Cheek' was slated to drop January 1st, 2014 but Interscope Records postponed it to this fall. The first song off the album, 'Anything Goes' unexpectedly went to iTunes today.

Bennett, 88, covered the song more than 50 years ago on his 1959 album 'Strike Up The Band.' They will promote the new album with a PBS Great Performances concert special, 'Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek LIVE!' This will be filmed in New York on Monday night and slated to air October 24th.

This was a lovely interpretation to the 1934 song 'Anything Goes' by Mr. Cole Porter. I've always said that Gaga's vocals suit jazz production amazingly, and both artists sound great together. Nice work overall!
