EVANESCENCE Is Working On 'Unique' New Project: 'It's Definitely New Territory For All Of Us'

Amy Lee says that EVANESCENCE is working on a "unique" new project that breaks "new territory" for the band. She tells TeamRock: "We're working on something new — and the info about it is on lockdown just for a little bit longer. In a short amount of time' I'll explain exactly what it is. But we are in the studio, we are working on a new project, and it's something different — it's not just a straightforward next EVANESCENCE album. It's something unique, something complex, something a little bit beyond that — and it's definitely new territory for all of us."

She adds: "It's very exciting, and we're working very hard. I can't wait to tell you what it is, but we will be releasing it this year."

Lee hinted in interviews last year at some sort of non-traditional release, saying: "There is some new EVANESCENCE stuff that we're starting at, but it's not exactly the most traditional thing… There's something else that's a little bit special and different and (that is) gonna take you down a different path that we wanna try."

EVANESCENCE debuted a previously unheard song called "Take Cover" during its North American tour last fall.

The singer has been evasive about when or if the band would record a new album, which would follow up its self-titled third effort that came out six years ago.

Lee released a new solo single, called "Love Exists", on February 10 via iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and all the usual streaming services. Another solo song, "Speak To Me", will appear on the soundtrack for the forthcoming supernatural thriller "Voice From The Stone", due April 28.
