The track, which won best original song at the 91st Academy Awards, was performed by Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the acclaimed film A Star is Born.
Oberst and Bridgers, currently touring their collaborative album Better Oblivion Community Center, also welcomed Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinne to the stage for their special rendition of ‘Shallow’.

Speaking about his surprise new record with Bridgers, Oberst said: “I’d never had the experience of writing a full record with another songwriter like this,” while in an interview with Rolling Stone.
He added: “It was from the ground up, sitting with guitars and spitballing different lyrics.” He added, “The whole experience was just what the doctor ordered for me to get excited about music again.”
