Lady Gaga has shared a new song called ‘Hold My Hand’, taken from the upcoming film Top Gun: Maverick. The track was produced by Gaga and BloodPop®, with additional production from Benjamin Rice. The version that appears in the movie features additional production and score by Harold Faltermeyer and Hans Zimmer. Take a listen below.
“I wanted to say that I wrote the song for the INCREDIBLE movie #topgun #topgunmaverick but also for people who feel like they’re not gonna be ok or WE ARE never gonna be ok and that life taught me through hard times to have faith in humanity when it’s hard to have faith in yourself,” Lady Gaga wrote on Instagram. “When you feel lonely, sad, removed from the world, far away from yourself and others #holdmyhand One day you may even be strong enough to hold your own 🤝. I love you with my whole heart for all the years I’ve been blessed to sing, write songs, produce and perform for you. Thank you 🙏 here we go!!! 🖤✈️ ”
Top Gun: Maverick is set to hit theaters on May 27. ‘Hold My Hand’ marks Gaga’s return to writing original music for film following the success of 2018’s A Star is Born, which earned her an Academy Award for Best Original Song for ‘Shallow’. Last month, Gaga performed ‘Love for Sale’ and ‘Do I Love You’, from her collaborative album with Tony Bennett, at the 2022 Grammys.
