Lady Gaga‘s vocals will soon take off with Tom Cruise in filmmaker Joseph Kosinski‘s imminent Top Gun: Maverick.
On Wednesday, the Oscar-winning A Star Is Born actress-songwriter unveiled “Hold My Hand,” her first single in almost two years and a song she’s been working on for the Paramount film’s soundtrack, which also includes music from famed composer Hans Zimmer.
“Hold My Hand” follows in the footsteps of the Oscar-winning song “Take My Breath Away” from the original 1986 Top Gun film, which was performed by Berlin and created by Giorgio Moroder and writer Tom Whitlock. The song peaked at No. 20 in the United States during the run of the Tony Scott–directed picture.
Gaga brought home her first Academy Award for penning the film A Star Is Born’s original song “Shallow.” She earned her first nomination for her song “Til It Happens to You” in the documentary The Hunting Ground.
