Lady Gaga Releases New Song “Hold My Hand” from Tom Cruise's New Film “Top Gun: Maverick” Soundtrack
- American singer-songwriter Lady Gaga joined in Tom Cruise's upcoming film “Top Gun: Maverick” soundtrack.
From the soundtrack, she released a new song “Hold My Hand” on May 3, 2022 via Interscope Records.
It was written and produced by Lady Gaga and BloodPop, with additional production from Benjamin Rice.
For Lady Gaga, the song is her first soundtrack since the 2018 album “A Star Is Born”.
Lady Gaga shared 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.”
“Top Gun: Maverick” is a long-awaited sequel to the 1986 film “Top Gun”. The film was directed by Joseph Kosinski, starring Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer.
The film premiered at CinemaCon on April 28, 2022, and is scheduled to be theatrically released on May 27, 2022 via Paramount Pictures.
Initially, the film was scheduled for release on July 12, 2019, but was postponed to "allow the production to work out all the complex flight sequences". Also, it was further delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
