Lady Gaga Soundtrack to “A Star is Born” Coming October 5th Has 12 New Songs and Judy Garland Nod with “Over the Rainbow”

Share

I did tell you some time ago that the soundtrack to “A Star is Born” would be mostly Lady Gaga originals. And so it is. On October 5th Interscope releases the music. There are plenty of Gaga originals– a dozen in fact, plus a few by director and co-star Bradley Cooper.

Very clever– there’s a nod to Judy Garland, who starred in the 1954 “Star” — Lady Gaga sings “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” (It’s from “The Wizard of Oz,” but it’s Judy’s most famous song.) Cool idea.

I’m told the big “11 o’clock number” is “I’ll Never Love Again”– that’s the song Gaga will take to the Oscars. Interesting, they’ve decided not to qualify for the Grammys this year, but for 2020 instead.

This is a Gaga album, kids, meant to sustain a year’s worth of sales. There are a million reasons to be excited!

PS Just a thought. But Gaga sings “La Vie En Rose.” Madonna has been singing the French classic at parties and for her fans lately. I hope she wasn’t thinking of putting it on new album. C’est la vie!
