Interscope Records has released the official soundtrack for the highly anticipated new film, Top Gun: Maverick.
The soundtrack is available now at all digital retailers, as well as on CD. A Target exclusive CD of the soundtrack includes an exclusive cover and poster. Arriving as one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the year from Paramount Pictures, Top Gun: Maverick also arrives in theaters nationwide today.
Earlier this month, Lady Gaga revealed “Hold My Hand” as the first single to be released from the soundtrack. Produced by Gaga and BloodPop with additional production by Benjamin Rice, the soaring anthem received widespread critical acclaim right after its release with Billboard declaring, “Lady Gaga soars with ‘Hold My Hand,’ and Vanity Fair raved the song “catapults her [Gaga] into next year’s Oscar race.”
“I Ain’t Worried” by GRAMMY nominated band OneRepublic followed. Produced by Ryan Tedder, Brent Kutzle, Simon Oscroft and Tyler Spry, OneRepublic will perform “I Ain’t Worried” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (NBC, 11:35/10:35c), tonight May 27th.
With a combination of classics from the original film, new music, and score, the album reflects Top Gun’s past, present, and future all at once. It boasts instantly recognizable cuts such as the theme song “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins, while Top Gun: Maverick star Miles Teller recorded a show-stopping live rendition of “Great Balls of Fire” showcased in the film and included on the record. Plus, it features original score tracks by the movie’s composers—Lorne Balfe, Harold Faltermeyer, Gaga, and multiple Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer added, “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 and beloved soundtrack.”
