Speaking previously about her contribution to the Top Gun: Maverick soundtrack, Gaga explained: “When I wrote this song for Top Gun: Maverick, I didn’t even realise 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. 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.”

Gaga went on to describe ‘Hold My Hand’ as “a love letter to the world during and after a very hard time”, adding: “I’ve wanted you to hear it for so long. And I’m so excited to give it to you on May 3.”
