Lady Gaga told "Today" co-host Savannah Guthrie on Tuesday that she was nervous about performing with the legendary Bennett, but her fears were unwarranted.

"The collaboration has just been so wonderful," Gaga said. "It's so natural singing with Tony."

"I love the way she sings," Bennett added of Gaga.

The pair previously sang together for "The Lady Is a Tramp" on "Duets II," Bennett’s album released three years ago.

“Cheek to Cheek” also features jazz musicians Mike Renzi, Gray Sargent, Harold Jones and Marshall Wood as well as pianist Tom Lanier and jazz trumpeter Brian Newman, according to Billboard. Tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano and flautist Paul Horn, who passed away earlier this month, are also featured on the album.

"I love everything about working with Tony," Gaga told Billboard, adding that she and Bennett began recording “Cheek to Cheek” two years ago. "He’s such a legend and because of that, you know, I get to learn so much when we sing together. And all the stories he tells me, and the way that he sings, it’s like he’s touching the heart of every single person when he sings to a room full of people."

PBS will air a concert special later this fall with Gaga and Bennett performing together, Billboard said.

Gaga and Bennett also debuted the video to “Anything Goes,” a Cole Porter classic and the first single from their album set for release Sept. 23.
