Tony Bennett has confirmed that he and Lady Gaga will start recording their full-length jazz album together this June.

Gaga was recently forced to cancel all the remaining dates on her Born This Way Ball tour after she sustained an injury to her hip but, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Bennett said that the pair were still planning to record their collaboration LP together in the coming months.

"We're working on it from now until June, and then we'll record in June," said the crooner. "She's phenomenal. I get along great with her. She's looking forward to it and so am I."

Bennett and Gaga struck up their unlikely alliance after their cover of 'Lady Is A Tramp' was included on Bennett's 'Duets II' album, with the singer subsequently claiming in October last year that their record will prove that Gaga is "one of the best jazz singers that anyone has ever heard". Previously, meanwhile, Gaga recorded and sent Bennett a video of her wishing him a happy 85th birthday, and also revealed that he had seen her naked while they were working together in the studio.

Last month (February 16), it was reported that Lady Gaga could lose out on up to £16m due to scrapping tour dates so she could undergo surgery for her hip injury. She is expected to release her third album, 'ARTPOP', later this year.
