Evanescence Shares Brand New ‘Synthesis’ Song, “Imperfection”

Last month, Evanescence let fans hear a new version of their Fallen hit, “Bring Me To Life.” It was just the first taste of their upcoming album, Synthesis. The album, out November 10th, reimagines the band’s songs in a more orchestral, electronic way. It also includes two new songs. One of those brand new tracks is “Imperfection,” just released today.

Frontwoman Amy Lee says that “Imperfection” was a tough song to write. She had the music for it months before she was able to write the lyrics. It addresses suicide, and promises that life is worth living even in the darkest of times. You’re irreplaceable, and Amy wishes she could only take away the weight of the world. Musically, “Imperfection” is stunning and grandiose. Piano and strings kick it off, but electronic beats and synths quickly join in. The effect is intense. With more where that came from, Synthesis is sure to be a marvelous album.

You can hear “Imperfection” below. Evanescence is filming a music video for the song today, so we have that to look forward to in the coming weeks.

You can pre-order Synthesis on iTunes now and get instant downloads of “Imperfection” and “Bring Me To Life.” You can also stream “Imperfection” on Spotify. The album will be out on November 10th.

Synthesis features 16 tracks. In addition to “Imperfection,” the other new song is “Hi-Lo,” 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. See the full tracklist below.
