Lady Gaga‘s ‘A Star Is Born’ has finally arrived!
Eagerly anticipated, the movie and its music are being hotly tipped for wins heading into award season.
Much ado is being made about the film’s soundtrack especially, with many receiving it as a new Gaga album (much like ‘The Bodyguard’). And it’s unsurprising why, as she performs 13 all-new songs.
One of the track’s gaining the most traction is ‘Heal Me’ – which was produced by hitmakers Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels.
Without pre-empting the movie’s narrative, the flick explores a variety of soundscapes – all of which tie to the plotline of Gaga’s character Ally.
Sonically, the song is a slice of Synth-Pop and it awaits your feasting below…
Though not as blazing as ‘Bad Romance’ or message-driven as a ‘Born This Way,’ ‘Heal Me’ is a hypnotic number that packs plenty of replay appeal.
From a production and hook standpoint, it’s addictive.
Lyrically, it skews somewhat “damsel in distress” (which, again, ties into the film;s plotline), but also dubs as a love song. A cliche love song, but an engaging love song nonetheless.
As one who appreciates Gaga’s versatility but is most roused by her Pop numbers, it’s warming to see that she can still deliver on that front.
