Interscope Records has announced the soundtrack for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s upcoming film, A Star Is Born, which will follow “the musical arc and romantic journey of the movie’s two lead characters,” according to the press release.
The 34-track album – which is available for pre-order now – is set to feature 19 songs and 15 dialogue tracks, which will “take listeners on a journey that mirrors the experience of seeing the film.”
Lady Gaga and Cooper both contributed to the writing on the album, with the 43-year-old actor lending his songwriting talents to four tracks and the 32-year-old singer earning writing credits on 13. The co-stars are also set to perform four duets in the film, including “Shallow,” which was featured in the movie's trailer.
The soundtrack also features the talents of Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell, Mark Ronson, Julia Michaels and Lori McKenna, and is set to drop October 5th, the same day the film hits theaters.
Lady Gaga shared the exciting news on Twitter, writing, “From our hearts to yours. The soundtrack to A Star Is Born.”
A Star Is Born, which marks Cooper’s directorial debut, is the fourth remake of a 1937 film. It was most recently made in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. In the film, Jackson (Cooper) discovers a struggling artist named Ally (Gaga) and the two fall in love, set to a backdrop of country music.
The film is set to premiere today at the Venice Film Festival, ahead of its October 5th theatrical release.
In a new interview, Bradley Cooper says he wanted Lady Gaga to be completely natural during her audition for A Star Is Born.
According to the LA Times, Cooper, who directs and stars in the film, swiped off Gaga’s makeup because he wanted to see her “completely open” and with “no artifice.”
“Take it off,” Cooper told Gaga when she walked into the audition with concealer, mascara and lipstick on. Then he took out a makeup wipe and removed it himself.
Meanwhile, Gaga made quite the entrance at the 2018 Venice Film Festival on Thursday, striking a glamorous pose on the edge of a water taxi as she pulled up to the event.
Gaga was all smiles as she cruised into the Palazzo del Cinema di Venezia on the side of the boat, showing off her fit figure in a chic black Jonathan Simkhai resort cocktail dress and matching black pumps. The Grammy winner, whose boyfriend, Christian Carino, accompanied her on the water, was also photographed blowing kisses to fans and sniffing a red flower before hopping off her ride.
