LOVE FOR SALE is the upcoming album from Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, thier second album together. Thier first album together, CHEECK TO CHEEK, released in 2014 won a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. 

As you can read in the post from Lady Gaga this second album is to feature songs celebrating Cole Porter

Cole Porter was a composer and lyricist who created a sophisticated and rich body of work that appeared on both Broadway and the Big Screen. Charming melodies and clever lyrics set Porter aside from other composers.

Notable songs include, "Let's Do It (Let's Fall In Love)" for Paris, "Night and Day" for Gay Divorce, "Wunderbar" for Kiss Me, Kate, "All Through the Night," "I Get A Kick Out Of You," "Blow Gabriel Blow," and the title song for Anything Goes.

Porter won his first Tony for his Kiss Me, Kate score. He also wrote many famous songs that appeared in films including, "I've Got You under My Skin," "In the Still of the Night," and "Easy to Love."
