Liza Minnelli, the longtime singer and actress, has recorded a new song for HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire,” reuniting her and Martin Scorsese.

Minnelli, 67, provided the vocals for “You’ve Gotta See Mama Every Night (Or You Can’t See Mama At All),” which is a cover of a classic Sophie Tucker song from 1923, according to Playbill. The song will close an episode of the show, which starts in the fall.

It will appear on “Boardwalk Empire Volume 2: Music from the HBO Series,” and the recording will be released on Sept. 3.

Minnelli–who won a Tony Award for “The Act and Flora”–will also perform in Atlantic City, where “Boardwalk Empire” is staged, on Sept. 28 at Ceasar’s.

The upcoming “Boardwalk Empire” soundtrack will also feature Elvis Costello, Patti Smith, Neko Case, and others.

“Terry Winters, Martin Scorsese and the entire Boardwalk Empire team inspire the sound of the episodes as we move from the streets and alleys of Atlantic City to the smoky rooms of Al Capone’s Chicago and on down into the tropics of Florida,” reads a press release from music supervisor Randall Poster, according to Pitchfork.com.

The last “Boardwalk Empire” soundtrack garnered a Grammy in 2012.
