NEW MUSIC: TONY BENNETT & LADY GAGA | I GET A KICK OUT OF YOU

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have once again reunited, just in time for Bennett's 95th birthday. On the same day as his birthday, the pair are celebrating majorly with announcing his second collaborative album with Lady Gaga, "Love for Sale," out October 1. Alongside the announcement comes a lively first single, “I Get a Kick Out of You.” The song debuted in Porter's "Anything Goes" musical in 1934 and has been covered by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Dolly Parton in the decades since. Gaga and Bennett's new version keeps the original lyrics referencing cocaine intact, though they've often been substituted over the years. Plans for a Bennett–Gaga reunion were first reported in February; it was reported that Bennett had been living with Alzheimer’s and readying the collaboration as one of his final projects. Despite his diagnosis, Bennett has continued singing, per the magazine’s feature, and spent the COVID-19 pandemic practicing music multiple times per week. Along with the announcement of Love for Sale, Bennett is scheduled to perform two final shows with Gaga at Radio City Music Hall today, August 3, as well as on August 5.
