Info for Top Gun: Maverick (Music From The Motion Picture)
The original Top Gun film has achieved iconic status for a number of reasons, and one of those is unquestionably its soundtrack – with Berlin's track Take My Breath Away winning the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1987 and becoming a mega-hit in its own right.
A total of 36 years on from that first film – and three years later than originally intended – sequel Top Gun: Maverick is arriving in cinemas this month, and once again it looks like music will play a major role.
This time it's Lady Gaga who has provided the main theme for the film in the shape of brand new song Hold My Hand, which was released in early May 2022 ahead of the film's debut.
And that track isn't Gaga's only involvement in the film – the pop superstar has also composed the score alongside Hans Zimmer, Lorne Balfe, and Harold Faltermeyer.
The soundtrack also includes a combination of other new tracks such as OneRepublic's I Ain't Worried and familiar recordings from the previous film like Kenny Loggins' Danger Zone, in addition to a live version of the classic Jerry Lee Lewis hit Great Balls of Fire performed by cast member Miles Teller.
Speaking about the soundtrack – which will be released simultaneously with the film on Friday 27th May – producer Jerry Bruckheimer said: "This album continues the musical legacy that the original Top Gun ignited back in 1986.
"We are so thrilled to have Lady Gaga and OneRepublic lend their artistry towards putting a modern spin on the already iconic
