Tom Cruise recently revealed to James Corden on The Late Late Present that he and Hans Zimmer, one of many composers for the upcoming High Gun sequel, had been combating the music for the movie when Woman Gaga approached them each with “Maintain My Hand.” “There was only a sound and one thing we had been on the lookout for and it simply wasn’t proper,” he mentioned. “She introduced her track to us and it simply opened up the entire film.”
It’s simple to see why. On Friday, Gaga launched the music video for her new track, a robust rock ballad that completely walks the road between fashionable music and the ‘80s sound that might have been at dwelling within the authentic film. The drama of the lyrics and guitar licks are intensified by the music video, which options clips from the 2 movies, depicting highly effective scenes just like the dying of Anthony Edwards’ Goose within the authentic film. However in between these pictures is Gaga, jamming on a piano, singing into the digicam, and strolling down an (airplane) runway.
Gaga’s seems within the video are clearly direct tributes to the movie. We first see her in pilot drag, sporting a white tank prime with an aviator jacket on prime. This isn’t simply any outdated costume, nevertheless, however the precise jacket Cruise wore within the authentic movie again in 1986. When the track actually hits its climax, although, Gaga switches out the tank prime beneath her jacket for a nude robe that explodes off the singer and into the wind. The gown was created by Ukranian designer, Lessja Verlingieri for her brand Lever Couture. Verlingieri has been working with Gaga and her vogue director, Nicola Formichetti, since 2011, this dramatic robe is simply the newest of their collaborations.
Verlingieri revealed to Paper Journal that the gown was created from 200 yards of cloth, and was impressed by a parachute, in addition to different efficiency put on generally worn by pilots. She needed Gaga to appear to be she’d been misplaced within the desert for 20 years, with the gown representing “independence, bravery, and survival.”
"Nicola has been a supporter of my model for the reason that early days and we now have collaborated on numerous tasks all through the final ten years," Verlingieri advised Paper. "He needed a gown that match the theme of the forthcoming High Gun sequel and I felt honored to step into his universe as soon as once more and create one thing distinctive and magical for Woman Gaga."
Whereas Gaga is safely on the bottom, in no want of an precise parachute, seeing this gown in motion, delivered to life by the wind and floating behind the singer in every in each path, we’re not solely satisfied it wouldn’t be sensible within the occasion of an precise emergency touchdown.
