‘Hold My Hand’ is set to appear in the new Tom Cruise movie Top Gun: Maverick.
Lady Gaga has dropped a stunning new song, her first single in more than two years.
Hold My Hand was written and produced by Gaga and BloodPop®, with additional production from Benjamin Rice.
Announcing the track via social media on April 27, the singer said:
“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,” she continued.
“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 love you my friend @tomcruise.”

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.”
