Evanescence will release their first album of new original music in nine years, ‘The Bitter Truth” (BMG) over the course of this year. Starting the journey off with the first song and video ‘Wasted on You’, the video was shot by each band member on their iPhones while in isolation. The intimately shot video breaks down the current walls of the world’s numbness while the band create another intense video for their discography.
As Amy explains, “We were recording this music right up until we couldn’t go into the studio anymore, and finished it remotely through file sharing and phone calls. Tweaking mixes, adding background vocals, creating the video and album art all from home has been like water in the desert for me, my light in a dark time. We are still writing and have a lot more work to do on this album, but this time we wanted to release the songs individually, as we create, to live more in the moment with our fans and our music.
“‘Wasted On You’ wasn’t the song we were planning to release first, but when the whole world went into indefinite lockdown and everything changed, so did the feeling and meaning of what we wanted to say right now. I didn’t write these lyrics about what we’re all now going through, but somehow that’s exactly what they are.
Proving that the upcoming album will be another hit in Evanescence’s career, The Bitter Truth will gradually be released throughout 2020.
