The previously announced duets album featuring Tony Bennett, who will turn 88 next week, and Lady Gaga, 28, now has a title, Cheek to Cheek, and a release date, Sept. 23. The unlikely partners have been promoting the set, which consists of standards, this week. A single, “Anything Goes,” is already available digitally and the video can be viewed here.
