Ahead of teaming up with longtime friend and trumpeter Brian Newman for one of her two Las Vegas residencies, Lady Gaga has shared a collaborative cover of Nina Simone's "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood."

The track finds Gaga's smooth vocal backed by delicate piano before Newman's horn and brushed drums enter the fold. You can hear it in the player below.

Gaga and Newman's reinterpretation comes from the latter's Showboat LP, out now through UMG Recordings.

Newman will serve as bandleader for Gaga's "Jazz & Piano" residency, a four-show run which will begin January 20. Further ticketing details can be found here.
