Last November, Evanescence made their long-awaited comeback with Synthesis. The new album features reimagined renditions of some of the band’s best-loved songs, re-recorded to highlight their symphonic and electronic elements. Along with the newly imagined classics, Synthesis also includes two previously unheard songs. While “Imperfection” was a brand new track, “Hi-Lo” was a leftover from Evanescence’s self-titled third album. Featuring violinist Lindsey Stirling, that song is a highlight on the record, and now comes with its own music video.
“Hi-Lo” is a dreamy, magical song that builds up to a stunning climax. The new music video maintains that other-worldly quality, scenes woven together to create feelings of reminiscence. There’s a simplicity and childlike wonder that make the scenes feel like memories from long ago. Along with shots of Evanescence performing live and Lindsey Stirling slaying her violin solo in a muted white room, “Hi-Lo” also features footage of ducks and swans swimming in park lakes, shots of city scapes, and images of people going about their quiet lives. The scenes blur together, lending a quality of fading memories.
Watch the music video for “Hi-Lo” below:
“Hi-Lo” appears on Evanescence’s new album, which came out last year. You can buy Synthesis on iTunes or stream it on Spotify now. Along with “Hi-Lo” and the new song “Imperfection,” it also comes with new versions of “Lacrymosa,” “Bring Me To Life,” “My Immortal,” and more.
You can also catch Evanescence on tour with Lindsey Stirling starting next month. They’ll be touring North America in support of Synthesis through the beginning of September. Find dates and tickets before it’s too late.
Following Synthesis, Evanescence plans to release an album full of all-new material next year; it will be their first record of new material since 2011. Keep checking back here for all the latest music news.
