EVANESCENCE: New Single Available For Streaming

AOL Music is currently streaming the new EVANESCENCE single, "Call Me When You're Sober", at this location. The video for the song will debut August 7 on MTV. According to MTV.com, the clip features singer Amy Lee wearing a red satin cape and sitting at an antiquated vanity. A young man — with crystal blue eyes and scruffy, overgrown facial hair and sideburns — approaches her from behind, caressing her shoulders and softly kissing her neck as she tries to rebuff his advances.

"The song is so literal, the lyrics and everything — I mean, obviously, just by the title — that we felt like the video would have the freedom to go in a less literal direction," she explained. "So it's [a modern re-imagining of] Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf and sort of a more cool, superhero, rock and roll Little Red Riding Hood."

The song's subject matter, Lee said, involves "something that everyone's been through" — the frustration of "dealing with someone with an addiction, which is really hard, especially when you love someone."

EVANESCENCE's new album, "The Open Door", is scheduled for release on October 3 via Wind-Up Records.
