With the highly-anticipated theatrical debut of A Star Is Born — featuring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga — now just weeks away, fans have become impatient to find out when the A Star Is Born soundtrack will become available to the public. The album is said to feature a mix of 19 brand new songs and covers of classic hits, as well as 15 dialogue tracks that highlight specific moments from the film, and won't be released until the movie hits theaters on Oct. 5.
Until then, fans will just have to check out the trailer to get their A Star Is Born soundtrack fix. Yes, the soundtrack will include the two songs that were featured in the film's trailer, "Shallow" and "Maybe It's Time," both of which offer fans a sneak peak into what they can expect from the album ahead of its release.
This new film follows the musical and romantic journey of Jackson Maine (Cooper), a troubled rock star, and Ally (Gaga), a waitress, local singer, and songwriter, who doubts her ability when they first cross paths. It will be the fourth telling of the dramatic A Star Is Born tale. However, with Cooper behind the camera making his directorial debut, the 2018 version stands to be a very strong showing that will bring the story to a whole new generation of viewers.
While Gaga has long been known as a superstar in the realms of music, the 34-track album notably showcases Cooper's singing (and songwriting) skills — something that fans of the entertainer have never been privy to before. On Aug. 30, Interscope Records released the A Star Is Born tracklist, which credited Cooper's name nine times, indicating that listeners are going to hear a lot of his voice upon the album's release.
