Lady Gaga gave the big announcement on social media sharing with her more than 52 million fans and followers a heartfelt and lengthy message revealing the story of the song and what was happening in her life at the time of writing it.

In her message, Lady Gaga revealed that she worked on the song for years until it was perfect. “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.” the singer wrote.

She then went on to add that those who worked on 'Hold my hand' are more than excited about the release and described it as a love letter in these difficult times.

“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 her message by giving a shout-out to Tom Cruise. "I’m so grateful to Tom and Hans and Joe 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 concluded.

This is not the first time Lady Gaga releases a song for a movie. A while back ago, you surely remember that Gaga released 'Shallow' for a Star is Born where she starred alongside Bradley Cooper. However, she has been busier in movies than in music. Her latest film 'House of Gucci' saw her portray Patrizia Reggiani with a super cast that included Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jared Leto, Salma Hayek, and Jeremy Irons.
