Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have released the tracklist for their upcoming duets album, Cheek to Cheek, due on September 23. In addition to duets on standards such as "Anything Goes" and "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)," Gaga and Bennett also will have a few solo tracks on the album. Gaga sings "Lush Life" and "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)," while Bennett goes solo on "Sophisticated Lady."

Sister rock trio Haim have premiered their new music video for "My Song 5 (feat. A$AP Ferg)" exclusively on VEVO. Directed by Dugan O'Neal (Chromeo, TV on the Radio), the video centers around a fictional Jerry Springer-type talk show called The Dallas Murphy Show. Vanessa Bayer of Saturday Night Live plays Dallas Murphy, and the video also features cameos from Ke$ha, Grimes, Big Sean, Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend), Ariel Rechtshaid and Haim's own parents.

The two-hour special celebrating fashion and music will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on September 9. It will air live on CBS.

T.I. has been added to the cast of Marvel's superhero movie, Ant-Man, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film, directed by Peyton Reed, began principal photography on Monday in San Francisco.

Ryan Adams, Jessie Ware, Lenny Kravitz and another dozen-plus artists have been added to next month's iTunes Festival in London, which is a month-long concert series at the Roundhouse venue from September 2 to 27. Other artists performing include Beck, David Guetta, 5 Seconds of Summer, Robert Plant, Sam Smith, Maroon 5, Paolo Nutini, David Gray, The Script and more.

Thirteen-year-old Brooklyn Metal trio Unlocking the Truth has been getting a lot of publicity lately for their young age, their recording deal with The Cherry Party/Sony Music, and their live gigs at Coachella, the Warped Tour and more. Now, The Cherry Party is teaming up with Artery Recordings on the marketing and promotion efforts for Unlocking the Truth. While the band is in the studio recording, they're also gearing up to headline shows in Los Angeles on September 13, New York City on September 24 and Philadelphia on September 26. The trio also has a handful of other shows on their calendar opening for Living Colour, Lacuna Coil, and playing Sacramento's Aftershock Festival with Rob Zombie and Godsmack on September 14.

Leonard Cohen will release a new album, Popular Problems, on September 23, two days after his 80th birthday. It features nine new, original songs that Cohen wrote in collaboration with co-writer Patrick Leonard. "Yet again, Leonard Cohen has broken musical boundaries with new creative inspiration," comments Rob Stringer, Chairman/CEO of Columbia Records. "These nine new songs are simply sublime and innovative with a unique spirit. We're absolutely thrilled and honored to celebrate this milestone with him."
