OneRepublic Shares New Single “I Ain’t Worried” From “Top Gun: Maverick” Soundtrack
OneRepublic have shared a new single titled “I Ain’t Worried”, marking their contribution to the new Top Gun: Maverick movie soundtrack.
The cut is the second song to be released from the film’s soundtrack starring Tom Cruise, following Lady Gaga’s emotional theme song “Hold My Hand.” By contrast, OneRepublic’s “I Ain’t Worried” is an upbeat, pop-fueled track, driven by happy whistling and dynamic percussion.
It arrived with an accompanying music video, featuring snippets from the upcoming film. Among these are snaps of star Tom Cruise piloting a fighter jet, playing beach volleyball and riding a motorbike. Check it out below.
Directed by Joseph Kosinski, Top Gun: Maverick is the sequel to the 1986 classic, which helped launch Tom Cruise’s acting career in Hollywood. Set 30 years later, the new film sees Crusie reprising his role as US Navy pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, now a lieutenant. It also stars Jennifer Connelly, Val Kilmer, Ed Harris, Miles Teller, and Jon Hamm, among others.
The film was originally supposed to be released in July 2019, but that has been pushed back several times. It’s now set to hit cinemas later this month on May 27, with the soundtrack set to release simultaneously.
“I Ain’t Worried” is OneRepublic’s second new original song this year, following the release of “West Coast” in February. They also released a live album titled “One Night In Malibu”, which featured a selection of their most beloved tracks recorded during a live stream in October last year.
