Lady Gaga has released the song “Hold My Hand”, which appears on the Top Gun: Maverick soundtrack. Lady Gaga co-wrote the song with BloodPop, and produced the track with BloodPop and Benjamin Rice.
The 36-year-old singer and actress said on Instagram that she hopes the song comforts fans during challenging times: “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. 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.”
Top Gun: Maverick is a sequel to the 1986 film Top Gun. The new movie is directed by Joseph Kosinski and stars Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris and Val Kilmer. Recently, Lady Gaga shared photos on Instagram of herself and Cruise after he attended her Las Vegas residency show: “Thank you for coming to the show last night. I love you my friend @tomcruise,” she wrote.
