Tony Bennett is at it again! He now holds five Guinness World Records. The 95-year-old recently set a brand-new record for being the oldest person to release an album of new material. He released an album called Love for Sale, which is a collaboration with his friend and fellow singer Lady Gaga.

The album was released on October 1, 2021. When it came out, Tony was 95 years and 60 days old. In comparison, Lady Gaga is 35 but said she doesn’t ever think about the age difference while they are performing.

She shared, “I see a young boy every time I sing with him, and it just makes the experience of singing so freeing. To have it be about two souls singing together … and then at the same time, I also take in all his wisdom. The wisdom of all his years.”
