Though the project is a collaboration with she and Bennett, the legendary 95-year-old crooner was not present as he recently retired from performing following an eight decade career.
The jazz album features 12 tracks that are covers of classic songs including some penned by Cole Porter for Frank Sinatra and Broadway tunes.
Gaga has two solo tracks on the album as does Bennett, and the record also features trumpet player Brian Newman who was present at the performance.
Gaga and Bennett first connected nearly a decade ago after the Fly Me to the Moon singer watched the popstar cover Orange Colored Sky by Nat King Cole at a charity event.
They teamed up in 2014 for their collaborative album Cheek to Cheek and then joined forces again on Love For Sale.
In February, Bennett’s family revealed his Alzheimer’s diagnosis. His wife Susan Crow told AARP magazine that he started to show signs in 2016 but began to decline two years later.
‘He’s not the old Tony anymore … But when he sings, he’s the old Tony,’ she said of his ability to dazzle on stage despite his diagnosis.
‘The fact that Tony sees me as a natural-born jazz singer is still something that I haven’t gotten over,’ Gaga said.
