Lady Gaga has shared a teaser of her new song ‘Hold My Hand’ from Top Gun: Maverick.

Last week, the singer announced that the song would arrive tomorrow (May 3), and said that she had been “working on it for years”.

The track is produced by BloodPop and Ben Rice, with the film version seeing further production and score music by Harold Faltermeyer and Hans Zimmer. 

In a dramatic 10-second teaser shared to social media, Gaga sits below an aircraft wing and sings “I won’t let go till the end”, followed by a climactic drum solo.

Watch the teaser below.

“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,” Gaga wrote on Instagram with the song’s announcement last week.

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

She continued:” I’m so grateful to Tom [Hanks] and Hans and [director Joseph Kosinski] 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. This song is a love letter to the world during and after a very hard time. I’ve wanted you to hear it for so long. And I’m so excited to give it to you on May 3. “Hold My Hand.”

She also included a snippet of lyrics: “But if you decide to / I’ll ride in this life with you / I won’t let go till the end.”

The 1986 ‘Top Gun’ starring Tom Cruise included hits ‘Danger Zone’ by Kenny Loggins and Oscar-winning ‘Take My Breath Away’ performed by Berlin.

Top Gun Maverick will be released on May 27, 2022.
