LISTEN: Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett Release New Song "Nature Boy" Ahead of 'Cheek to Cheek' Release
Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett's collaborative jazz album Cheek To Cheek is just one week away from its release date, and in anticipation of the new album, the unlikely duo have dropped a new song, "Nature Boy."
Originally performed by the late, great Nat King Cole, Gaga and Bennett's take on this jazz classic maintains the minimalistic classy mood of the original, blending together a piano lead with a strong swell of orchestral instruments.
Gaga's voice, which is soft and sweet in the opening verse blends in perfectly to the sweet and wistful mood of the song. She's complimented by Bennett's legendary own jazz vocals in a smooth, soothing way that proves that these two still got it.
