Today, Aug. 3, the incomparable, incredible, legendary Tony Bennett celebrates his 95th birthday — and the iconic singer picked a pretty great way to commemorate the occasion.

On Oct. 1, Bennett will release Love For Sale, a new collaborative album with Lady Gaga.

It’s their second such record together, following 2014’s Grammy-winning Cheek to Cheek, and it was previewed on Tuesday with “I Get A Kick Out of You,” originally made famous by Frank Sinatra:

Love For Sale finds Bennett and Gaga exploring the best of the Cole Porter songbook, and features duets as well as solo performances by both artists accompanied by Tony Bennett’s quartet, The Brian Newman Quintet, along with big band and orchestral arrangements by Marion Evans and Jorge Callandrelli.

Gaga revealed some details regarding how this second album came together:

The day we released “Cheek To Cheek” in 2014, @itstonybennett called me and asked me if I wanted to record another album with him, this time celebrating the songs of Cole Porter. I’m always honored to sing with my friend Tony, so of course I accepted the invitation.

The album’s track listing:

1. It’s De-Lovely
2. Night And Day
3. Love For Sale
4. Do I Love You
5. I Concentrate On You
6. I Get A Kick Out Of You
7. So In Love
8. Let’s Do It
9. Just One Of Those Things
10. Dream Dancing

Happy birthday, Tony Bennett!
