In her post-Dead Petz world, Miley Cyrus is taking her talents to Freeheld, the forthcoming film about a real-life lesbian couple who fought New Jersey county officials for domestic-partner rights after one of the women, Laurel Hester (played by Julianne Moore), was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Also starring Ellen Page, the film debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival this week and featured a new song from Cyrus. Called “Hands of Love,” the track was written by Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes, and according to an interview with Time, Page suggested Cyrus as the performer. “She has a really raw, unique, awesome, beautiful voice, and Miley’s doing a lot of incredible things for the LGBTQ community,” Page told Time. “I just thought it was going to be a perfect fit. She and Linda made something really special. I kept listening to it after I heard it.” Hear the song in the new trailer below.
