Lady Gaga is, once again, taking her inimitable songwriting prowess to the silver screen. Having just announced her forthcoming single “Hold My Hand,” the song has been written for the latest installment of the iconic Tom Cruise franchise Top Gun: Maverick.

“Hold My Hand,” which is available May 3, was produced by Gaga, in concert with her known collaborator, BloodPop and Benjamin Rice. Described as a “love letter to the world,” the score played in the feature film also includes additional production and instrumentals by Harold Faltermeyer and Hans Zimmer.

“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,” Gaga shared on Instagram on Wednesday, April 27.

With her particular knack for music in film, Gaga has acquired quite the impressive list of accolades throughout her career, beginning with her first Oscars Best Original Song nomination in 2016 for “Til It Happens To You,” featured in the documentary The Hunting Ground. In 2019, Mother Monster took home the gold statue for her Best Original Song, “Shallow,” featured in A Star Is Born.

“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,” said Gaga. “I’ve been working on it for years, perfecting it, trying to make it ours.”

While the film was originally slated to hit theaters in the Summer of 2020, the release was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the sequel to Cruise’s 1986 Top Gun flick, Top Gun: Maverick is due to arrive in theaters May 27, 2022.
