Bennett, 95, and Gaga, 35, have partnered with ViacomCBS on new specials that will air on CBS, MTV and Paramount+, ViacomCBS announced in a press release Wednesday.

“We are honored to partner with the legendary Tony Bennett and the iconic Lady Gaga for ViacomCBS’ biggest cross-platform music talent collaboration to date,” Bruce Gilmer, chief content officer of music at Paramount+ and president of music, music talent, programming and events at ViacomCBS, said.

The new deal ties in with Bennett and Gaga’s forthcoming album, Love for Sale. Bennett and Gaga will release the title track, “Love for Sale,” and a music video for the song Friday on MTV ahead of the album’s release Oct. 1.

The first TV special, One Last Time: An Evening with Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett, will air Nov. 28 at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS. The concert special was filmed at two of Bennett and Gaga’s sold out shows at Radio City Music Hall in August.

The second, MTV Unplugged: Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, will air on MTV in winter of this year. The special was filmed earlier this summer in New York City and will feature a combination of duets and solo performances from Love for Sale.

The third and final special, The Lady and the Legend, a new documentary, will stream on Paramount+ in 2022. The documentary explores the making of Bennett and Gaga’s most recent album together and their 10-year friendship.

Love for Sale will mark Bennett’s final studio album. Bennett and his family announced in February that Bennett was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2016.
