As Tony Bennett celebrates his 95th birthday, and he and Lady Gaga prepare for a two-night stand at Radio City Music Hall beginning tonight, reps for the singer and Lady Gaga have revealed the title, concept and track list for their second collaborative album, “Love for Sale,” a Cole Porter tribute. The Oct. 1 release is being billed as Bennett’s final recording.
“Love for Sale” is the second album from the duo, following their 2015 chart-topper “Cheek to Cheek.”
MTV will premiere a video for the track “I Get A Kick Out Of You” Friday at noon ET.
The Porter tribute album is said to include solo selections from both Bennett and Gaga as well as duets; an initial track list for the digital/CD/vinyl release (included below) doesn’t designate which are which. The album cover graphic includes a photo of Bennett, acclaimed for his visual art over the years, holding up a sketch of Gaga.
The Radio City shows happening tonight and Thursday are now being billed as Bennett’s final New York City live appearances, as well.
In February, Bennett’s family revealed that the singer had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s five years prior, even though he had maintained a touring schedule up to the beginning of the lockdowns early in 2021.
For Bennett’s 95th, a number of major celebrities are posting birthday tributes via the singer’s Instagram channel or their own, including Paul McCartney, Bono with the Edge and others.
