According to Amy Lee‘s publicists at Mercenary Publicity, the Evanescence singer and her bandmates are currently in the studio working on new music, expected later this year.

Lee hinted in an interview with AOL last fall that the band was gearing up to make new music, but that it might not take the form of a traditional album release. Lee explained: “We have some new little plan in store, but I don’t wanna give it away yet. But there is some new Evanescence stuff that we’re starting at, but it’s not exactly the most traditional thing. It’s not just, ‘Okay, we’re gonna make a new album right now.’ Not that that’s not coming, but first there’s something else that’s a little bit special and different and [that is] gonna take you down a different path that we wanna try.”

Lee said a while back that she doesn’t use record sales as a gauge for success these days. “Well, you just can’t judge it the same way you used to and by the same model,” she explained. “Having people hear and connect to your song isn’t directly linked to record sales, that’s for sure. I think it may be more accurate to look at how many views on YouTube or something. I’m cool about it. We’ve had a lot of success in the past and that’s awesome. I don’t look at it like this daunting thing that we have to live up to, I look at it like this really positive, awesome thing that wouldn’t have been able to happen if we’d come out for the first time this year.” Continue reading »

Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee has released a new solo single called ‘Love Exists’. Featuring artwork by Jennybird Alcantara, the song is now available for purchase on Amazon, Google Play and Apple Music.

Lee stated about the inspiration for the track: “When I was in Italy filming the video for ‘Speak To Me’, I fell in love with a song I heard on the radio there, ‘L’amore Esiste’ by Francesca Michielin. It seemed to follow me everywhere, got under my skin and just wouldn’t leave. I couldn’t stop listening to it, over and over the whole way home. I started piecing together what the lyrics meant and wrote my own twist on them in English.

“I showed my idea to one of my dream producers, Guy Sigsworth, and somehow convinced him to come to New York and re-create the song with me. Dave Eggar contributed his lush string arrangement and we all just lived in this song for a week at Flux Studios on the Lower East Side. Continue reading »

Amy Lee, better known as the co-founder and lead vocalist of the rock band Evanescense, on September 30, 2016 released a family album “Dream too much”. It was exclusively available through Amazon Prime Music and features “original music for kids and families”. Amy is the American chairperson for the international epilepsy awareness foundation Out of the Shadows. Having won many accolades in the past such as the, Best Vocalist at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards In 2012, Best Film Score for Indigo Grey: The Passage at the Moondance International Film Festival in 2015, she has been awarded as Rock Goddess of the Year plenty of times. She has contributed with artists such as Korn, Seether, and David Hodges in the past, and is known to have a recognisable fashion style, which is marked by her occasional use of Gothic make-up and taste for Victorian-styled clothing. Her duet with Jonathan Davis on the acoustic version on “Freak on a Leash” for MTV unplugged was received well among fans.

Before I start off with the review, I would want to mention that this isn’t a rock/metal album. So for all you metal heads out there, if you have been blessed with babies in your family, you must listen to it and share it with your little ones. With this album, Amy Lee has charted onto a different territory altogether and has crafted beautiful lullabies and rhymes which can be enjoyed by all ages. Continue reading »
