New Music: Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett - 'Nature Boy'...

Will this echo through your heart today? Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett premiere 'Nature Boy,' the third single off their upcoming album 'Cheek To Cheek,' due September 23rd. 

Her soothing, haunting vocals, paired with the big flute and oboe solos, and the breathtaking orchestra band, is what makes this song the main standout from the rest.

It's certainly a nice change from the shouting and theatrical side to Gaga's voice. This jazz standard was written by Eden Ahbez in 1941 and made famous by Nat King Cole. The song tells the story of a “strange enchanted boy”, who is said to have “wandered very far…over land and sea.”
Gaga tweeted: “This is one of my absolute favorites! Our rendition with the now late multi-reedist Paul Horn is spectacular. You will hear his genius in the flute solo of our ‘Nature Boy,’ a solo that will echo through the world today. And forever.”

The song is now available to download on iTunes.
