You remember Evanescence, especially their early 2000s hits like “My Immortal” and “Going Under.” Now one of their biggest hits, “Bring Me To Life,” has been resurrected in a new form. Evanescence has re-recorded their Fallen debut single with a more orchestral, electronic sound for their upcoming album, Synthesis. Frontwoman Amy Lee has been plotting this passion project for a few years, and “Bring Me To Life” is just our first taste.
This 2017 version of “Bring Me To Life” doesn’t feature vocals from Paul McCoy. In fact, this “solo” version is closer to Amy Lee’s original intention for the song, before their record label forced the band to add the guest singer. True to their description of Synthesis, this new recording emphasizes the orchestral and electronic musicality behind the song. However, the overall structure and Amy’s vocals are essentially the same.

The band has been recording the new album since spring this year. They’ve shared plenty of behind-the-scenes looks along the way, but have kept most details a secret. We’re still awaiting an official announcement of the album’s release date and tracklisting.
Synthesis will be out this fall. In addition to “Bring Me To Life,” it will feature two brand new songs, as well as new recordings of Evanescence’s singles and album tracks. The band will embark on a Synthesis Live tour this October, performing across North America through December. An album of all-new material is also expected out sometime in 2018.
