If anyone of you guys love jazz (or watched channel 7 this morning), then you'll be excited to know that Tony Bennett is coming out with another album! The Grammy-award-winning hit-maker will have you swinging your hips as he lays one down with some of the most popular names in music today. The new album Tony Bennett: Duets II, which will be out on September 20th, features the voices of singers like Lady Gaga, John Mayer, Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah, and Michael Bublé.
But, probably the most anticipated voice on the album will be that of the late and still great Amy Winehouse. Together, Tony and Amy's voices meld to bring us "Body and Soul." The single, which was Amy's last completed work before her death on July 23rd, will be available for digital download via iTunes before the release of the full album on her birthday September 14th. The proceeds will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, set up by the singer's family, which provides support for young people suffering from substance and alcohol abuse issues.
And to get you excited for that day, VEVO has unveiled an exclusive trailer featuring both Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse. You can hear Amy's thoughts on her collaboration with Tony and why this was the perfect song for her. This collaboration meant a lot to both artists and if you're a fan, it will mean a lot to you, too. And look out for the official video also scheduled to be released on Amy's birthday!
You can watch the trailer, here.
