A Star Is Born won’t hit theaters until next Friday, but fans excited for the movie have something to get them through the week of anticipation.
A Star is Born, directed by and starring Bradley Cooper alongside Lady Gaga in her first major role in a feature film, is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. But the soundtrack isn’t coming out until the film’s release date, so all for months was the film’s trailer, which features a clip of the epic ballad “Shallow.”
“Shallow,” performed by Cooper and Lady Gaga, was expected to premiere Friday. But it dropped Thursday at 12:30 PM Eastern time on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio with DJ Zane Lowe. It’s available on iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube.
It’s a catchy and dramatic song that not only might snag an original song Oscar nomination – honestly, the movie will have quite a few tunes for the Academy’s consideration – but also could be an unavoidable hit and a new favorite at karaoke bars everywhere.
Listen to “Shallow” below.
