Lady Gaga has announced the new song from “Top Gun: Maverick” “Hold My Hand.” The song written by Gaga, features in the film opening May 27 and will be released on May 3.
The artist shared this on social media:
“When I wrote this song for Top Gun: Maverick, I didn’t even realize the multiple layers it spanned across the film’s heart, my own psyche, and the nature of the world we’ve been living in. I’ve been working on it for years, perfecting it, trying to make it ours. I wanted to make music into a song where we share our deep need to both be understood and try to understand each other—a longing to be close when we feel so far away and an ability to celebrate life’s heroes. I’m so grateful to Tom and Hans and Joe for this opportunity—and it’s been a beautiful experience working with them. Me, BloodPop, Ben Rice and everyone else who worked on it with us are so excited to share it with you. This song is a love letter to the world during and after a very hard time. I’ve wanted you to hear it for so long. And I’m so excited to give it to you on May 3. “Hold My Hand.”
🎶 But if you decide to
I’ll ride in this life with you
I won’t let go till the end 🎶”
In the highly-anticipated film, Tom Cruise returns as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, a courageous test pilot who dodges the advancement in rank that would ground him. He finds himself training a detachment of TOPGUN graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.”
Gaga’s soaring ballad was written for the motion picture and is featured throughout the film. The single was produced by Gaga and BloodPop, with additional production by Benjamin Rice.
