Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper share new song 'Shallow' from 'A Star Is Born': Listen
The catchy ballad, co-written by Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt and Anthony Rossomando first premiered in the film's teaser trailer and is now out in full.
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper pair up in the upcoming musically-themed romance 'A Star Is Born,' directed by Cooper himself and set for an October 5 release.
The film is a remake 1937 David O Selznick Hollywood classic of the same name and showcases Gaga and Cooper's vocal chops, as well as, their skill in front of the camera. The film premiered at the Venice Fim Festival in August to rave reviews, creating quite a bit of Oscar-buzz around it. In anticipation of the film's release, the filmmakers have released the full song 'Shallow,' accompanied by a music video that shows us several clips from the film.
Audiences first got a taste of 'Shallow' from the film’s teaser trailer, in which Cooper plays a ruffled-up, alcoholic musician who discovers Gaga’s underappreciated songstress. The song, which Gaga co-wrote with collaborators Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt, and Anthony Rossomando, is a touching slow burner of a ballad that builds into a glorious crescendo, showing off Gaga’s incredible range, while also giving us a peek at Cooper’s so-far-unseen musical talent. Watch the music video for 'Shallow' below.
The track premiered on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio, where Gaga spoke to host Zane Lowe about the film and her collaboration with Cooper. Gaga spoke about Cooper pitching her on the project, revealing how he came to her house and the two performed an impromptu duet of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 'Midnight Special.' Not long after they started, Gaga said she had to stop because she was so taken by Cooper’s voice.
"I was blown away by it, you know, because the truth is that there’s people that can technically sing perfectly and have no soul,” Gaga said on the show. “And with Bradley, he just sings from his soul, and he knows how to tell a story when he’s singing, and I heard it right away. And I knew in that moment – you know, I’m kind of a bit of a snob when it comes to watching actors play rock star, but I’m telling you, I was like, this man knows how to be a rock star.”
