The Grammy Award-winning singer set a Guinness World Record for being the oldest person to release an album of new material.
Gaga, 35, said that despite the 60-year age gap, she continues to be inspired to perform with the senior crooner.
The new album, which celebrates Cole Porter’s music, is not their first record together. In 2011, Bennett and Gaga recorded the song “The Lady Is a Tramp” and three years later they released a collaborative album called “Cheeks to Cheek”.
Of course, this is not the first record in his 70-year career. In fact, Guinness says he has four others:
- The oldest person to reach #1 on the US album chart with a newly recorded album for “Cheek to Cheek”.
- Longest time among UK top 20 albums: 39 years.
- The oldest person to enter the UK Top 20 album chart with “Duets: An American Classic” at the age of 80.
- The longest time between the release of an original recording and a re-recording of the same single by the same artist.
