It was released through Interscope Records on September 27, as the lead single from the soundtrack to the musical romantic drama film, A Star Is Born. The song is heard three times throughout the film, most prominently during a sequence when Cooper's character Jackson Maine invites Gaga's character Ally to perform it onstage with him. Gaga wrote it from Ally's point of view with the self-aware lyrics asking each other if they are content being who they are. A rock power ballad ,  the song finds Gaga and Cooper trading verses and gradually moves toward the climactic final chorus with a vocal run by Gaga. The recording is interspersed with the sound of audience noise and applause. An accompanying music video was also released, showing both Gaga and Cooper's characters singing "Shallow" together onstage, interspersed with scenes from A Star Is Born. Commercially, the song topped the charts in more than twenty countries and reached the top ten elsewhere. Gaga collaborated with Mark Ronson , with whom she had produced her fifth studio album, Joanne , to develop the soundtrack for this version of the film A Star Is Born.

There was a grave nature to the room. I was at the piano, the guys each had a guitar in their hands and we started coming up with lyrics and talking to each other. Ronson: In the original script, Jackson was going to drown at the end. So Gaga comes in, sits down at the piano and starts playing a few chords, and it just sounds big, right off the bat. It felt like an end credits song because it was about the suicide. Gaga: There was a time when he was going to drown in the end, so we thought it might be the ending song. Then as the script changed we made it a song about the two falling in love. I do feel it was more than the literal drowning element of the original script. It was much more about wanting a deep connection and love than it was about water.
