Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett Plan 2nd Album

. Tony Bennett says that he and Lady Gaga will be teaming up on a second album that will feature their take on Cole Porter songs. The new album will follow their Grammy winning duets album "Cheek To Cheek."

As the veteran singer took a break from rehearsing for his Grammy appearance, he spoke with the Los Angeles Times about his love of the classic songs, "I'm a big believer in the Great American Songbook. A lot of record companies call it 'old music' and I think that's absolutely ignorant. It's really the greatest music that ever came out of America."

Bennett also offered his praise of Lady Gaga, "She's a very good singer. She's not a flash in the pan. That's why I had to do these great standards. And it's really paying off because the album's so big."

He went on to break the news that they will be teaming up again to record a new album, "Now we're about to record an album of all Cole Porter songs. That'll be the second album." Read the report here.
