After releasing her version of “The Anonymous Ones” for the film adaptation of Dear Evan Hansen earlier this month, SZA has returned with an accompanying music video for the musical-inspired track.

Directed by Colin Tilley, the visual opens as the Grammy-winning artist sits at the foot of her bed writing in her journal, before she leaves to hop on a public bus, where she sings solemnly out the window. Then taking to the streets, where the bus stop boasts a poster for Dear Evan Hansen, SZA finds herself lost in the chaos of strangers passing her by as she reaches the chorus.

“Thе anonymous ones never lеt you see the hate they carry/All those anonymous ones never name the quiet pain they bury,” she sings. “Keep on keeping secrets that they think they have to hide/What if everybody’s secret is they have that secret side?”

The track, written by Benj Pasek, Justin Paul and Amandla Stenberg for the Tony Award-winning musical’s original motion picture, appears alongside the original version on the soundtrack. Additional features include Sam Smith, Summer Walker, Finneas, Carrie Underwood and several others.

Dear Evan Hansen (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) will release in tandem with the film on September 24 via Interscope.

Elsewhere, J. Cole has returned with a new track, titled “Heaven’s EP,” that builds on Drake’s “Pipe Down” beat.
