Three weeks ago, Evanescence finally released their new album, The Bitter Truth. Fans waited a full decade for this, but it was all worth it: The album is incredible. The last single we heard before its release was the defiant “Better Without You.” Today, fans can watch its accompanying music video.
The first ten seconds of “Better Without You” open with a delicate music box sound, but it’s not long before it pulses into mayhem. With punchy guitars and an aggressive soundscape behind her, Amy sings low on the verses. She paints a picture of a powerless girl signing away her future, but she knows the truth. The song explodes into a powerful chorus, both strong and dreamy. The chorus then fades out with a hypnotic vocal cascade. “Better Without You” is one of the most rocking songs on the band’s new album, and perhaps the most balanced between Evanescence’s different styles.
Evanescence filmed the music video three weeks ago with director Eric D. Howell. It starts with a delicate ballerina figuring twirling in her music box, soon cutting away to fiercer imagery. Amy Lee stalks through dark hallways, seemingly in a maze of deep colors. Meanwhile, each of her bandmates performs alone, bathed in red light. Eventually Amy breaks free, perhaps also freeing the ballerina from her own prison in the process.
