Lady Gaga talks to Ryan Seacrest about her new album Cheek to Cheek and her love for Sam Smith

Lady Gaga was Ryan Seacrest's guest on heat radio yesterday as she called Ryan to talk about her brand new album 'Cheek to Cheek' which she's recorded with legendary singer Tony Bennett.

“I just was shaking in my boots, really. I tell everyone that I kept a whiskey underneath my stool when I was recording with him in the studio because I was so nervous,” Gaga told On Air with Ryan Seacrest about her experience working with Tony. “I feel so humbled to be doing this project with him. This is, for me, the most important album I’ve ever made.”

Gaga's also a huge fan of Sam Smith telling Ryan, "Sam is a true musical artist, a true musician, there’s an organic-ness in his voice and the records that he’s made, and I really feel that this is the turn that music is going to take now."
