A snippet of the powerful ballad was previewed during the trailer for the lesbian drama Freeheld. Miley Cyrus just debuted the guitar-driven piece in full and it’s fantastic. I have no doubt the 22-year-old entertainer will perform the Linda Perry-penned tune on the Saturday Night Live Season 41 premiere this weekend where she’ll play both host and musical guest.
“She walked in with no entourage, no fuss, no anything. She came to be of service for the song and the movie and didn’t bring ‘Miley’ with her.” – Linda Perry on Cyrus
Freeheld is based on the true story of New Jersey police officer Laurel Hester and her partner Stacie Andree. The two fought for equal benefits rights after Hester was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Julianne Moore and Ellen Page play the couple respectively and both attended the world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. Check out the track below.
