Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper Premiere Their Epic Duet ‘Shallow’ From ‘A Star Is Born’!

We’re far from the shallow now…

At last! “Shallow,” the first song released from the motion picture soundtrack to A Star Is Born, is finally here. The original song, performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, is indeed the one that Gaga‘s character Ally belts out when she’s brought up on stage in all the trailers for the upcoming musical drama. It’s probably been stuck in your head since the trailer debuted…

Shallow,” which was written by Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt, is a slow-building power ballad that finds Bradley and Gaga trading verses over twinkling acoustics and a resonant piano melody. It steadily moves towards a potent soaring Gaga vocal run that culminates in a chilling final chorus perfectly suited for a stadium.

Wooaaaah/ Woaaaaaaaaaaah/ I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in/ I’ll never meet the ground,” Gaga sings. “Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us/ We’re far from the shallow now.” While Gaga is truly the highlight in this number, Bradley without a doubt holds his own and even indulges in some impressive harmonizing. It’s a moment.

I got the chance to attend an early screening of the film on Tuesday (September 25) and was driven to tears with the build up to “Shallow.” It’s hard to say anything else about the film without maybe spoiling the experience for you – so I will just say that I cried, I want the full soundtrack like now, Bradley is a dreamboat and I’m a happy Lady Gaga stan.

Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow” from A Star Is Born is also available on Apple Music and Spotify now!
