Los Angeles: Veteran singer Tony Bennett is re-teaming with pop star Lady Gaga to record a full-length jazz album.

Bennett formed a close relationship with the `Bad Romance` hitmaker while recording a cover of `The Lady Is A Tramp` for his hit album Duets Ii last year.

The 86-year-old says they had such a good time together, they are heading back into the studio again, reported Rolling Stone magazine.

"She called me from New Zealand and said, `I want to do a jazz album with you.` And I said, `You got it!` So that`s one of the things we`re gonna do," Bennett said.

And the `Fly Me to the Moon` crooner, who plans to begin working on the project soon, said that he can`t wait for the world to hear Gaga in a new light.

"A lot of people don`t know it, but she`s a phenomenal jazz singer... She`s a good friend and I respect that she`s so creative, that every day she changes, she has so many ideas and carries them out. She just never stops with it. I call her the musical Picasso," he added.
