THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Love For Sale is the new collaborative album from Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. This historic album will be Tony’s last studio recording, showcasing the Cole Porter songbook of classic popular music with both duet and solo selections from both artists. Their duet on I Get A Kick Out Of You was be the first single.
Love For Sale, featuring Cole Porter’s songbook, was an idea the two performers discussed shortly after their first album Cheek to Cheek debuted at the tp of the album charts upon its release in 2015. Recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York City, the album features a mix of jazz ensemble, big band and orchestral arrangements. At the time of the sessions, Bennett had already been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, a condition the family made public in a disclosure earlier this year.”
