Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett releasing a second album together

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are releasing a sophomore album this fall.

The 35-year-old announced Tuesday on Instagram that she will collaborate with the legendary singer, 95, for a second album called “Love for Sale.”

The musical duo is set to release the forthcoming album, which will feature the two duetting Cole Porter songs, on Oct. 1 as a follow-up to their 2014 hit album, “Cheek to Cheek.”

Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, timed the announcement to celebrate Bennett’s 95th birthday on Tuesday, accompanied by a video of the album artwork.

“The day we released “Cheek To Cheek” in 2014, @itstonybennett called me and asked me if I wanted to record another album with him, this time celebrating the songs of Cole Porter,” she wrote. “I’m always honored to sing with my friend Tony, so of course I accepted the invitation. Today, I am so excited to announce that our new album ‘Love For Sale’ will be released October 1. You can pre-order the album and listen to our first single “I Get A Kick Out Of You” everywhere now!”

In February, Bennett’s family revealed the legendary singer had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and had been secretly battling it for some time. The family told AARP that his decline began in 2016, but his health became seriously concerning in 2018 when he was recording “Love for Sale” with Lady Gaga.

But the icon’s diagnosis has not stopped him from performing. The pair performed onstage together on July 2 for MTV Unplugged.

They’re also set to perform two nights of farewell shows at Radio City Music Hall — billed as Bennett’s last time onstage ever. “One Last Time: An Evening With Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga” will take place on Aug. 3 and Aug. 5.
