Miley Cyrus may just have dropped a wacky album - 'Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz' - on Soundcloud last week, but the pop star has a somewhat more serious track in the works, too.

Her new song 'Hands of Love' - a ballad which was written by Linda Perry - can be heard on the trailer for new film 'Freeheld'. The film stars Ellen Page and Julianne Moore, and is based on a real-life story of a gay New Jersey couple who fought for the rights to have one of their police pension benefits transferred to the other after she was diagnosed with cancer.

According to Time, it was Ellen Page who suggested Cyrus for the song. "She has a really raw, unique, awesome, beautiful voice, and Miley's doing a lot of incredible things for the LGBTQ community," she said. "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."
