Miley Cyrus unveiled the evocative visual for her power ballad “Slide Away” on Friday (Sept. 6).

The emotionally-charged video opens with Miley underwater in a slinky gold dress and matching accessories as she processes moving on in the wake of her split with husband Liam Hemsworth.

“Once upon a time, it was paradise/ Once upon a time, I was paralyzed/ Think I’m gonna miss these harbor lights/ But it’s time to let it go,” the superstar sings as she wanders through a raucous house party looking dazed and mournful.

Several scenes from the new video echo those from the clip for Miley’s 2012 No. 2 hit “We Can’t Stop” — from the hard-partying extras to the shots of the sun-drenched star looking out from the edge of the pool — except this time, she’s fully detached from the revelry happening around her.

On Aug. 10, Miley announced her separation from Liam after less than a year of marriage. (The former lovebirds had been on-and-off for nearly a decade after meeting on the set of 2010’s The Last Song.) Less than two weeks later, Liam officially filed for divorce.

Billie can’t think of a single song with the word «dance» in it.

Billie Eilish looks fierce on the cover of Elle magazine’s October Women in Music issue, flawlessly pulling off one of her signature blank stares while holding up long green fingernails that match the stripe in the middle of her hair.  Inside, she talks about her style, the world’s strange obsession with how she dresses and thoughts of possibly changing up her look when she turns 18. «I’m gonna be a woman. I wanna show off my body. What if I wanna make a video where I wanna look desirable?» she says.

But most importantly, she slips into her favorite red sleeping bag to play a game of «Song Association» in which she has 10 seconds to think of and sing a lyric featuring a key word. Spoiler alert: things do not get off to a great start when she, literally, cannot think of a single song with the word «dance» in it. «Wow, dance is in every song, I can’t even think of one,» she says, shaking her head. «Why am I thinking of ‘Livin’ on a Prayer?'»

She quickly recovers, though, stumbling through The Weeknd’s «Worth It» when prompted with the word «perfect.» The next one is a slam dunk, as «Lovely» happens to be the title of one of her 2017 collab with Khalid. «Party» is not hard, though Eilish admits she used to sing «Farty in the U.S.A.» whenever she thought of the flatulence-free Miley Cyrus smash.

From there it’s a run through Big Sean and Kash Doll’s «So Good» for «good,» a spirited take on «queen» P!nk‘s «So What» for «rockstar,» a soulful stab at H.E.R.’s «Gone Away» for «gone,» and, of course, her own «Ocean Eyes» for «ocean.» She dips into some Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj’s «Beauty and the Beat» for «beauty,» a loving tribute to Avril Lavigne’s «Complicated» for, duh, «complicated,» a jazzy «Creep» by Radiohead for «when» and her own «My Strange Addiction» for «strange.»

She also claps through Pharrell’s «Happy» («happy»), Clairo’s «Pretty Girl» («Polaroid) and ends with a scatting run through her «Bad Guy» («bad»).
