American singer-actress Lady Gaga revealed Wednesday that she is lending her voice and lyrics to Tom Cruise’s highly-anticipated movie “Top Gun: Maverick”, with an original song titled “Hold My Hand”.

Gaga shared that she had been working on the song for years and spoke candidly about what both the process and end result meant to her.

“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,” she stated.

The iconic singer continued: “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 also thanked the song’s key contributors, and added: “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.”

Moreover, the sequel is set to screen at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

The screening marks the sequel’s world premiere and the first time in three decades that a Cruise movie to play at Cannes. His last appearance on the festival’s lineup was Ron Howard’s “Far and Away” in 1992.

The 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival is set to take place from May 17-28.

”Top Gun: Maverick" also stars Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer.

Cruise and Kilmer reprise their roles from the original 1986 movie.

Joseph Kosinski directed from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger, Eric Warren Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie as well as a story by Peter Craig and Justin Marks.

The movie picks up 30 years after the events of the original “Top Gun” and features Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (played by Cruise) now working at the prestigious United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program that he attended in the original.

He is forced to navigate the increasingly complex world of drone warfare as he mentors a new generation of Navy pilots.

“Top Gun: Maverick” hit theaters on May 27.
