The first trailer for "A Star Is Born" is out and it stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.

Forget about the song of summer. Here's your song of fall – and maybe all of awards season.

On Thursday, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper unveiled "Shallow," the first single from their upcoming Oscar contender "A Star Is Born" (in theaters Oct. 5). It's an awesome display of powerhouse vocals from Gaga and the first inkling for fans that, yep, Cooper (who also directed the film) ain't too shabby himself.

"Star" centers on hard-living country rocker Jackson Maine (Cooper) finding and taking up-and-comer Ally (Gaga) under his wing. She shows him some of her fledgling songwriting chops, and he convinces her to hit the stage with him to sing her tune "Shallow."

Maine/Cooper starts the duet crooning with acoustic guitar, and then Ally/Gaga comes in and does some vocal gymnastics in the bridge before unleashing the full Gaga in the final chorus. 

It's a catchy and dramatic song that not only might snag an original song Oscar nomination – honestly, the movie will have quite a few tunes for the Academy's consideration – but also could be an unavoidable hit and a new favorite at karaoke bars everywhere.
