Pop star Miley Cyrus and music producer Linda Perry have teamed up to create a track for new gay rights play Freeheld.
The picture, starring Julianne Moore and Ellen Page as a couple fighting for pension benefits, had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday night, and the Wrecking Ball hitmaker took to Instagram to disclose she collaborated with well-known writer Perry for a special melody in the picture.

Cyrus has been a longtime gay rights advocate, while Perry has been openly gay for most of her career.
Freeheld is based on a 2007 documentary, which centered on Laurel Hester – a New Jersey policeman played by Moore – who challenged government officials and demanded pension benefits for her same sex partner, Stacie Andree, impersonated by Page, as she fought lung cancer.
The movie is expected in films on October 2.
