According to media sources, Hold My Hand, produced by Lady Gaga and BloodPop, with additional production by Benjamin Rice, is a rock tune with violins and guitar licks that go back to the power ballads of the ’80s. The song, which plays over the end credits, has already stirred buzz as a possible best original song contender for Gaga, following the film’s CinemaCon screening in Las Vegas.

In her Instagram post, Gaga shared how she felt about the track and its journey. She wrote in the caption, “I didn’t even realise 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. 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 (sic).”
