When Lady Gaga stars in your movie about an up-and-coming singer turned superstar, it’s going to have a killer soundtrack. And like the other tunes featured in the marketing campaign for “A Star Is Born,” the latest song snippet to debut from the flick is further proof that this film will be stacked with unforgettable music.
In a post on social media, Gaga previewed a beautiful, soaring ballad called “Is That Alright?,” which seems to very closely mirror the action of the movie. Take a listen below:
“A Star Is Born” is inspired by the 1937 classic of the same name (which has been remade twice before), and follows Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper), a washed-up country music legend who discovers and falls in love with Ally (Gaga), an aspiring singer who becomes mega-famous. As their careers diverge in wildly different directions, so does their relationship.
Gaga and Cooper wrote or co-wrote almost all of the film’s music, including “Is That Alright?” It seems safe to say that many of these songs seem poised to become hits in the real world, too — and probably gun for some Oscar (and Grammys) glory.
That’s certainly the hope for the film, whose release date was moved in an apparent attempt to position it for prime awards season consideration. Based on everything we’ve seen — and heard — so far, it looks like it will more than deserve those accolades.
“A Star Is Born” opens on October 5. The soundtrack will be released on the same day.
