On Tuesday (Aug. 3) — the same day as Bennett’s birthday — the pair announced their Cole Porter tribute album Love for Sale, out Oct. 1, and released the first single from the project, “I Get a Kick Out of You.”
The album — which is set to be Bennett’s final studio recording, following his Alzheimer’s diagnosis — is a follow-up to the duo’s Billboard 200-topping Cheek to Cheek album in 2014, which won the Grammy for best traditional pop vocal album.
“I Get a Kick Out of You” debuted in Porter’s Anything Goes musical in 1934 and has been covered by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Dolly Parton in the decades since. Gaga and Bennett’s new version keeps the original lyrics referencing cocaine intact, though they’ve often been substituted over the years, with Bennett crooning: “Some get a kick from cocaine/ I’m sure that if I took even one sniff/ That would bore me terrifically too/ Yet, I get a kick out of you.”
On Tuesday night, Gaga and Bennett are set to play a sold-out Radio City Music Hall concert and return to the venue for another show Thursday. A video for “I Get a Kick Out of You” will debut Friday at noon ET.
