Amy Lee on HoHo Show: “Is so healing in my heart travel with my family”

Amy Lee on Ho Ho Show

Evanescence singer Amy Lee caught up with Donny Fandango ahead of their SOLD OUT HoHo Show at Peabody Opera House on Sunday (December 3). She spoke about how the reimagining of Synthesis came to be, including the idea of playing with a full orchestra, playing beautiful theatres while wearing “fancy clothes”, how playing in this type of busy, high-level orchestral atmosphere forces her to focus and “step up” and much more.

“[The song] ‘Hi-Lo’ we’ve had in the bank for a long time,” Amy said (see video below). “I wasn’t quite finished [writing it before], but it’s just a song that never fit anywhere that I’ve been holding on to and waiting to find its right home for 10 years. So it’s this weird thing that I feel very close to already that I’ve had to listen to with my family and my friends to now finish it out and have the orchestra on it. That’s what it needed — it needed that beautiful, luscious emotion that [longtime collaborator, orchestra arranger and composer] David Campbell put on there. But I wrote that song with our producer on this album, the guy that did all the programming, Will [Hunt, not to be confused with Evanescence‘s drummer, also named Will Hunt]. It was our first collaboration together 10 years ago. And the other one, ‘Imperfection’, is brand new. We just wrote it this year. And it was very collaborative between Will, again, and also David Campbell, the arranger. He’s done all the string arranging for Evanescence for all of our albums, but this one… We went in [and said], ‘Let’s go in and go really deep and rip [the songs] apart and elevate ’em to another place together and make something new.’ So for all of it, and the new [song] included, he was a real part of what laid the foundation of what was gonna happen. So it gave the music and the writing and everything a chance to grow in some different directions.”

Rolling Stone Mexico: Evanescence compartió el video de “Imperfection”

El tema formará parte de su próxima producción discográfica titulada ‘Synthesis’.

Imperfection

Evanescence estrenó el video “Imperfection“, canción que forma parte de su próximo material discográfico Synthesis. El videoclip fue dirigido por Paul R. Brown y filmado en la cuidad de Los Ángeles.

“Para mí, esta es la canción más importante del álbum. Tuve problemas con la letra durante mucho tiempo porque había toda una vida de trabajo con gran calidad anteriormente y no estaba segura qué hacer para que fuera lo suficientemente buena”, mencionó Amy Lee.

El clip tiene como protagonista a una niña que está conmocionada después de vivir una tragedia personal. Después de dos minutos de agitar las cuerdas, el video se llena de visuales teñidos de rojo, mismos que se yuxtaponen entre imágenes de Amy Lee, figuras geométricas y algunos elementos como el fuego y el agua.

Imperfection

Cuando se le preguntó sobre la inspiración detrás de este tema Lee comentó: “Es para todas las personas que hemos perdido y todas esas personas que podríamos perder. Por todas esas personas que piensan en el suicidio y que sufren de depresión.”

Synthesis se estrenará el próximo 10 de noviembre.

“It’s for all the people we’ve lost, all the people who we could lose, to suicide and depression”

Evanescence have unveiled the fittingly dramatic new video for their latest single ‘Imperfection’. See it first on NME below.

The track is the lead single and one of the new songs from album ‘Synthesis’ – a reworking of some of the band’s best-loved tracks performed with a full orchestra and electronic elements. ‘Imperfection’, is an emotional moment dealing with suicide and depression.

“For me, this is the most important song on the album,” singer Amy Lee said of ‘Imperfection’. “I struggled with the lyrics for a long time because there was a lifetime of work to live up to and I wasn’t sure what to say or how to be good enough. When it finally started pouring out of me, it was undeniable. I had no choice.

“It’s for all the people we’ve lost, all the people who we could lose, to suicide and depression. I’m singing from the perspective of the person left behind, the person in the waiting room. It’s a plea to fight for your life, to stay. Don’t give into the fear- I have to tell myself that every day. Nobody is perfect. We are all imperfect, and it’s precisely those imperfections that make us who we are, and we have to embrace them because there’s so much beauty in those differences.”

She added: “Life is worth fighting for. You are worth fighting for.”

Dream Too Much - Lyric Video

Estaba esperando este Lyric Video hecho por Mick Scissorhands. Suscribanse en su canal de YouTube!.

There’s a monkey in my bed
The muffins are sleeping
And the tigers in the sand, oh no
Well, the grapes keep raining down
And everyone is eating
But another train is rolling into town

There’s no way you can dream
Way you can dream
Way you can dream too much
There’s no way you can dream
Way you can dream
Way you can dream too much

It’s a very windy day
At the bottom of the ocean
And the sandwiches you made of flew away
But the jellyfish helped you build
A watermelon tower
And the station master smiled as if to say

There’s no way you can dream
Way you can dream
Way you can dream too much

In dreams you can do anything you want to
In once in a while you have dreams that come true
Swim through the clouds till you land on the moon
When you do, dream of something new

Cause there’s no way you can dream
Way you can dream
Way you can dream too much
There’s no way you can dream
Way you can dream
Way you can dream too much

There’s no way you can dream
Way you can dream
Way you can dream too much
There’s no way you can dream
Way you can dream
Way you can dream too much
Keep on dreaming
