The Neon Demon made its theatrical debut Friday, and now Sia has shared her single from the film’s soundtrack.

Titled “Waving Goodbye,” the electro-embellished song is a powerful ode to a difficult break-up. “So one hand is holding your body / The other is waving goodbye / I love you, but it’s your turn to cry,” Sia wails atop Diplo’s chest-pounding production.

The score, composed by Cliff Martinez, also features dream pop band Sweet Tempest and Danish singer Julian Winding. Starring Elle Fanning, The Neon Demon follows 16-year-old aspiring model Jesse (Fanning) as she navigates the cutthroat world of Hollywood. Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, and Jena Malone round out the cast.

Listen to “Waving Goodbye” below. Sia will hit the road Sept. 29 for a 22-date North American tour.
