The “Jazz + Piano” headliner is collaborating with a legendary rock band.
Lady Gaga is featured on the Rolling Stones’ latest album, “Hackney Diamonds.” She’s on the cut “Sweet Sounds of Heaven.”
The band announced the release during a promotional event Tuesday night with Jimmy Fallon from Hackney Empire theater in east London.
Gaga joins Stevie Wonder (or, it seems as if she will)on the release. Guitarist Ron Wood called out Wonder’s name and mimed playing the piano as Fallon announced Gaga on the song title called the song “unbelievable.”
“Angry,” the first single from the album, and accompanying video is out now. The album is out Oct. 20. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were reported to be playing on the project, but their participation is not confirmed. Neither ex-Beatle were mentioned during the Fallon session. Steve Jordan is the Stones’ current drummer, and the late Charlie Watts’ playing is on two tracks.
Andrew Watt, Producer of the Year at the 2021 Grammy Awards, is producer.
Gaga continues her “J+P” performances Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at Dolby Live.
