Reporter: Tara Brown

Producer: Steven Burling

This is a musical collaboration as bizarre as it is perfect. Tony Bennett is the legendary 88 year old crooner who has been singing professionally since the 1940s.

Lady Gaga is the most avant-garde name in pop music today. For all their differences, they are, strangely, kindred spirits. Now, 4 years after their first brief duet, they've returned to the studio to do an entire album.

Tara Brown caught up with Mr Bennett and Lady Gaga in New York City - to try and make sense of it all.
