Lady Gaga just revealed a new track and music video titled "Shallow" from her upcoming movie with Bradley Cooper, A Star Is Born.
Other artists who were featured in the movie's soundtrack are Jason Isbell, Lukas Nelson, and Mark Ronson. The film's official soundtrack will be released by Interscope Records on Oct. 5, which is also the showing date of the film.
About Lady Gaga And Cooper's New Single
The song was written by Lady Gaga, along with Andrew Wyatt, Mark Ronson, and Anthony Rossomando. Additionally, she co-produced the single with Benjamin Rice. The new release is a ballad by Lady Gaga and Cooper backgrounded by a piano and acoustic guitar.
Lady Gaga added that the moment where they sing "Shallow" during the movie is such an important scene.
The video was released in the multi-awarded singer's YouTube channel and gives a new peek to the latest romantic drama flick as it showed clips of the singers and scenes from A Star Is Born. The film is Cooper's first shot at directing. He also wrote the script with Will Fetters and Eric Roth.
Cooper's Musical Talent
The song premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1, where the "Joanne" singer also talked about the film, how her last album is tied with the film, and Cooper's surprising musical talent.
In fact, she mentioned that she was so surprised with the award-winning actor's voice when he sang "Midnight Special" by Creedence Clearwater Revival when Cooper asked her to be on board the project.
"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," gushed the singer about her costar.
"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," Lady Gaga added.
During her radio show guesting, she also noted how she made herself vulnerable for her role in the movie and how it was the perfect way to continue the efforts she was doing for her last album.
In the movie, Cooper's character, Jackson Maine, gets enamored by the talent of Ally, played by Lady Gaga, and falls in love with her just as she has lost hope to continue her career. However, Maine coaxes her into the spotlight and gives her the break that she deserves. Despite her career's success, romantic and personal problems with her love interest arise.
