She sings for “Top Gun: Maverick”
Lady Gaga will be featured in the movie Top Gun: Maverick with the single “Hold My Hand.” The singer reveals details about the song on Instagram.
Lady Gaga (36) contributes the song “Hold My Hand” to the film “Top Gun: Maverick” with Tom Cruise (59). The singer has in an Instagram post now enlightened her fans about the background of the song: “This song is a love letter to the world during and after a very difficult time. I’ve wanted you to hear it for so long. And I’m so excited to bring it to you on May 3rd to show.”
When she wrote the track for the film, she said she had no idea what meaning it would have for “the heart of the film, my own psyche and the world we live in”. She worked on it for years and perfected it. The song is said to “transport our deep need to be understood and to try to understand one another – a longing for closeness when we feel so far apart and the ability to celebrate life’s heroes”. “So grateful to Tom and Hans and Joe for this opportunity – it’s been a wonderful experience working with them.”
