Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga have released a track from their upcoming duet album 'Cheek To Cheek'.

Written by Cole Porter for the 1934 musical of the same name, the duo's new version of 'Anything Goes' was unveiled with an accompanying video filmed in the studio during recording. Scroll down to view.

The album is due for release on September 23 and will feature many jazz standards including 'It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)', 'Sophisticated Lady', 'Lush Life', and the album's title track 'Cheek To Cheek' among others.

"'Cheek To Cheek' came out of a very organic friendship and relationship that Tony and I have built over the years and it truly was a collaborative effort," said Gaga in a statement. "It was important to Tony that this was a jazz record. I've been singing jazz since I was a child and really wanted to show the authentic side of the genre. We made an album of jazz classics, but it has a modern twist."

Gaga had previously worked with Bennett on his 2011 'Duets II' album, recording a version of "The Lady Is a Tramp".

In June, the pair made a surprise appearance at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in New York City, giving students a short performance and masterclass.
