ANOHNI’s new single “Drone Bomb Me” lets the pain seep out. The singer announced a new album Hopelessness Tuesday, paired with a stirring video for the new song starring actress Naomi Campbell.

“Drone Bomb Me” is a moving track from the Oscar nominee, and the video with Campbell matches the emotion. Campbell sits in a chair, watching an aggressive mob of men clad in black, and sings along to the song, uttering the titular phrase and asking to “blow from the mountains and into the sea.”

ANOHNI was nominated at last month’s Oscars for Best Original Song — “Manta Ray,” for the documentary Racing Extinction — and was the second-ever openly transgender nominee in Oscars history. ANOHNI wrote an open letter ahead of the ceremony and explained why she would not attend, after having her performance cut for time constraints.

“The positive implication of this nomination was being retracted,” she wrote, and “the producers seemed to have decided to stage performances only by the singers who were deemed commercially viable.”
