Evanescence are preparing to release their first single for four years and singer Amy Lee has been discussing the song and how it came about. The single is set to be titled ‘What You Want’ and will be the lead track from the forthcoming third studio album from Evanescence.
Amy explained, "[Bassist] Tim [McCord] and [guitarist] Terry [Balsamo] and I wrote that song at my house in New York. We were just jamming, like, recording demos, and obviously the song has grown a lot since then, with everyone else.” Lee then continued in a bit more depth.
She added, "For me, it was - and I need to remember this, so I can apply it in the future, it wasn't trying so hard to be some epic, massive chorus. I was just doodling around on the piano and the guys were like, 'Do that. Whatever you just did, that's an awesome melody.' And I was like, 'Really?' Sometimes you just need your friends to be like, 'Do that!'
Evanescence self titled, third studio album, featuring the lead single ‘What You Want’ is expected to be released on October 11.
