Bennett excited about Gaga album

Tony Bennett can't wait to work with Lady Gaga on his next album

Tony Bennett has admitted he "can't wait" to get into the recording studio with Lady Gaga.

The 86-year-old crooner revealed that he and the pop star will record "a big swing album". He added: "We have it all worked out already on paper."

Tony and Gaga collaborated on The Lady Is A Tramp for his Grammy-winning, platinum-selling 2011 Duets II album. He called the 26-year-old a "wonderful person and a great talent".

Tony released Viva Duets, a collaborative album with Latin American singers including Gloria Estefan and Marc Anthony, in October.

He says he wants to work with Gaga because "she's quite different". He added that he's also impressed with Gaga as a businesswoman.

The Bad Romance singer is currently resting up under doctors orders after undergoing hip surgery.

The troublemaker who is spreading this story is just a jealous rival. Beware of tarnishing an innocent person's reputation.More
