During a recent interview for the Canadian news site LaPress, Tony Bennett talked about his upcoming jazz album Cheek To Cheek with Lady Gaga and also revealed that the record will feature original songs. One of them is Paradise, written by Lady Gaga herself. Here’s what he had to say:
I don’t understand why she makes contemporary music. When she sings great standards, she does it with such emotion… She will surprise people with the quality of her voice when making quality songs. We sing covers together on the album, but also separately. There are also some original songs, including one she wrote called Paradise. With this album, I think she will become bigger than Elvis Presley! Of course we recorded the album in New York. As the song says: “If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere”.
