Lady Gaga has confirmed her plans to record a full album of Jazz standards with crooner Tony Bennett

Lady Gaga has confirmed her plans to record a full album with Tony Bennett.

The 'Poker Face' star teamed up with the legendary crooner for the first time last year for a cover of show tune 'The Lady is a Tramp' and the song's success, they are to record a whole album together.

Gaga - who appeared with Tony again this week to sing at US President Barack Obama's Inaugural Ball - tweeted: "'I had the most amazing evening with The President, First Lady & The Whitehouse staff (sic)"

Underneath a picture of her and Tony, she added: "'And here's me and my handsome date, I simply cannot wait for our album together, he's my darling! (sic)"

Tony, 86, has previously talked about the project, saying he has already lined up a band to record them.

He said: "Of all things, Gaga called me from New Zealand and said, 'I want to do a jazz album with you' and I said, 'You got it!'

"We're gonna do a jazz album with Marion Evans, a big swing band, and I'm looking forward to it because a lot of people don't know it, but she's a phenomenal jazz singer."

A release date for the album has yet to be set.

The distinguished veteran crooner has aged gracefully and exudes effortless cool in his stage presence and idiosyncratic laid back interpretations of a host of standards.
