Cheek to Cheek is a collaborative album by American singers Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. It was released on September 19, by Interscope and.and
By Craig McLean. The lunchtime rush is over — some Japanese fans, busy having their photograph taken at their table, are the only other patrons — and both Joe and Cynthia Germanotta happen to be in the house. That was her roots: she was trained in jazz. Another foundation was supplied in the family home. Tony Bennett is an old American staple. That he is.
It was released on September 19, by Interscope and Columbia Records. After the two later recorded together a rendition of " The Lady Is a Tramp ", they began discussing plans for working on a jazz project. It was inspired by Bennett and Gaga's desire to introduce the songs to a younger generation, since they believed that these tracks had universal appeal. In January , the album was announced by both artists and started its recording process after Gaga recovered from a hip surgery. It was recorded in New York City, where Bennett and Gaga were accompanied by a live band and jazz musicians associated with both artists. Gaga deviated from her previous contemporary pop albums as she wanted instead to create a jazz record. The release date of the album was delayed multiple times, and the final date was announced by Bennett and Gaga on The Today Show.
Coming off a fractious run as hip surgery curtailed a string of Born This Way concert dates, Cheek To Cheek initially raised a few eyebrows among Lady Gaga fans. That familiarity was, however, beginning to lose its shine for some. Her previous studio set — the ambitious ARTPOP , issued the previous year — attracted the first mixed notices of her career and a slower, if still impressive, sales start. That collaboration turned out so well that the pair discussed a more ambitious project, but it would take time for their busy schedules to synchronise. Gaga later admitted to journalists that the thought of working with Bennett had terrified her. Returning to the genre again was, she says, liberating.
