Evanescence Previews “Lacrymosa” In Behind-The-Scenes Look At ‘Synthesis’

Just last night, Evanescence shared their brand new song, “Imperfection,” from their upcoming album Synthesis. Scheduled for release on November 10th, Synthesis is primarily made of Evanescence’s past songs, but rerecorded with a more symphonic and electronic sound. Today, Evanescence also offered up their first behind-the-scenes video from the making of Synthesis. In the background, you can hear a bit of “My Immortal” and “Lacrymosa” in their new forms.

Frontwoman Amy Lee, producer Will Hunt, and conductor/arranger David Campbell describe their vision for the album. They took inspiration from composers like Igor Stravinsky and Béla Bartók, who weren’t afraid to push the boundaries and experiment with sounds. Listen for “My Immortal” and “Lacrymosa” in the background. “Lacrymosa” in particular sounds stunning!

Synthesis features 16 tracks. In addition to the new songs “Imperfection” and “Hi-Lo” (the latter a leftover from the early Evanescence recording sessions of 2010), the album includes new versions of three Fallen tracks, three The Open Door songs, and five from Evanescence.
