Amy Lee Shares Gentle Children’s Song, “If You’re A Star”

Last month, Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee shared a new song called “Dream Too Much.” It comes from her new children’s album of the same name, due out later this month. Now we get our second preview of the album with “If You’re A Star.” This song is gentler, a lullaby to sing your child to sleep to.

Amy told the Huffington Post about how she wrote the song with her husband, Josh Hartzler, for their son Jack:

My husband and I both sing to Jack all the time, making it up as we go. Josh came up with the beginnings of this song. I asked him if I could take what he did and turn it into a whole song ― which was really fun. One of my favorites.

Listen to the sweet “If You’re A Star” below:

Amy Lee recorded her new album, Dream Too Much, with her dad, siblings, and uncle. Her son, Jack, even makes an appearance. The 12-song record includes both original compositions and covers of beloved children’s classics.

Dream Too Much is available for pre-order now at Amazon, ahead of its September 30th release date. Digital pre-orders come with an instant download of title track. CD pre-orders, however, do not offer that instant download. The album is exclusive to Amazon.

You can read up on what we know about the album already, including some behind-the-scenes looks at the recording process. Dream Too Much will be out on September 30th. This is the first – and perhaps only – kids album Amy will release. As she mentioned to Rolling Stone, “I’m going to focus on the next thing being … more centered around my adult music career.” There’s no word on a new Evanescence album yet, but the band is releasing a huge boxset this November. Collectors will love getting everything from Origin onward on vinyl! Keep checking back here for all the latest Amy Lee and Evanescence news.
