Jimmie Allen and Abby Anderson are channeling their inner Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga for a stunning new cover of "Shallow," the smash-hit song from A Star Is Born. Readers can press play above to watch the pair's video for their version of the song.
As viewers follow Allen and Anderson via a split-screen video, both their voices and their paths meet in a recording studio as they sing "Shallow" together. The two bring some serious chemistry to their performance, too, delivering longing looks apropos of the song's lyrics.
"A Star is Born was one of my favorites from last year, and the performance of this song in the film really moved me as an artist. I had chills!" says Allen in a press release. "Getting to cover "Shallow" with my good friend Abby was such a cool experience. She’s an incredible vocalist, and I’m excited for fans to hear our take on the song.”
Adds Anderson, "I think I speak for everyone when I say that I bawled like a baby during A Star Is Born ... When Jimmie called and asked if I would sing on this song with him, I was honored. I mean, I’m no Lady Gaga, but working on this with Jimmie, who pours his whole heart into a song vocally, was an absolute joy.”
"Shallow" has garnered some serious attention since its release on the soundtrack for the 2018 version of A Star Is Born: The song is nominated for Best Original Song at the 2019 Academy Awards, and it's already won at the Grammys and Golden Globes.
In addition to "Shallow," which was written by Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt, the A Star Is Born Soundtrack also features a number of songs penned by country and Americana heavyweights: Lukas Nelson, Lori McKenna, Jason Isbell and more. Nelson also served as a musical consultation for the film -- the fourth remake of the 1937 movie of the same name -- produced seven of the songs and plays a member of Jackson Maine (played by Cooper)'s band.
Allen and Anderson's version of "Shallow" is available to stream and download now.
