Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett Release New Cover of 'Nature Boy' - LISTEN

Duet

Off of their upcoming jazz duets album comes Gaga and Bennett's cover of the song, "Nature Boy." Gaga paid tribute to the late musician Paul Horn, whose flute solo is featured on the song. Gaga took to Twitter to share the story behind the song and Horn's contributions:

Nature Boy was composed in 1941 by eden ahbez, a wandering man from Brooklyn with long hair. It was recorded first by Nat King Cole in 1947...

You will recognize it also famously as used in 'Moulin Rouge,' but our rendition with the now late multi-reedist Paul Horn is spectacular...

Horn was meant to join Tony & me for the PBS special but sadly passed just weeks before, a New Age Jazz pioneer, lets celebrate him 2day...

You will hear his genius in the flute solo of our "NATURE BOY" a solo that will echo through the world today. And forever. #TheGreatPaulHorn

Gaga and Bennett are back! They've released a new track from forthcoming jazz album, Cheek to Cheek. This time the duo covers "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," a standard dating back to 1928 when it was sung by Adelaide Hall. Rufus Wainwright and Billie Holiday have tackled it in the past, but Lady Gaga is sure to bring a whole new audience to the classic. It is certainly a new sound from the pop diva, but she and Bennett are both in top form on the track.

Gaga will talk about Catholic school, family, New York, and food. According to MTV.com:

In addition to her new single, "Marry the Night," and other songs from Born This Way ("You and I," "The Edge of Glory"), Gaga will perform "White Christmas" and her duet with Tony Bennett, "The Lady Is a Tramp." Chef Art Smith will also drop in to share some recipes on the special, including his holiday classic, deep-fried turkey and waffles.

"A Very Gaga Thanksgiving" airs November 24th, on ABC.
