Lady Gaga is back with new music!

The 36-year-old pop star has released her powerful new song 'Hold My Hand' to feature on the soundtrack for the new Top Gun: Maverick movie.

The track is a soaring rock tune with violins and guitar licks that harken back to the power ballads of the '80s.

"'Hold My Hand' is a love letter to the world during and after a very hard time,” explains Gaga in a statement. "I've wanted you to hear it for so long."

And the epic anthem is already being tipped for a possible Best Original Song Oscar at the 2023 Academy Awards.

A source said: "'Hold My Hand' is Gaga at her best ... I wouldn't be surprised if, come next year, Gaga has got herself another Best Original Song nod from the Academy."

Gaga previously won Best Original Song at the 2019 Oscars for 'Shallow,' which she recorded with Bradley Cooper for their acclaimed romantic drama A Star Is Born.

The first Top Gun won the Oscar for Best Original Song for Berlin's 'Take My Breath Away'.

The eagerly anticipated fighter plane action sequel sees Tom Cruise reprise his role as Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell from the original 1986 blockbuster.
