Love for Sale was recorded between 2018 and 2020. In 2020, Tony Bennett's health deteriorated because of isolation due to COVID-- until then, engaging with people and performing had been able to keep him in good shape. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2016. They have just completed a mini tour of two shows, on his & her birthdays, at Radio City. AARP reports that now Tony often struggles to respond / engage in conversation, except when he is performing.

I know there has been some discussion about Tony Bennett preforming with his health in such a state, and I really recommend reading this recent AARP profile on him. It's incredibly sad-- he may not even remember who Gaga is at times. But performing music is actually good for his mental state, even though it may be counter intuitive.
