Tony Bennett and Christina Aguilera finally released a studio version of their soulful duet "Steppin' Out with My Baby". The twosome shared the stage to perform the song on a 2006 NBC TV special and then reunited to sing the same tune on "Saturday Night Live" and 2007 Emmy Awards.
The classic song was written by Irving Berlin and originally recorded for 1948's musical film "Easter Parade" which starred Judy Garland. Tony and Christina's re-recorded version is going to be included in his upcoming compilation "Viva Duets" which is expected to be released in the United States on October 23.
In addition to collaborating with Christina, Tony joined forces with Michael Buble and Delta Goodrem for two different renditions of the song. Both duets served as bonus tracks of his 2006 CD "Duets: An American Classic".
Christina is also preparing for a new album called "Lotus". "This album is about self-expression and freedom. There is a lot I have gone through personally over the past few years, and this record represents a rebirth for me. The record is about freedom and getting back to the root of who I am and what I love to do," she said.
