Evanescence singer Amy Lee will release a new album, "Amy Lee featuring Dave Eggar: Aftermath," on August 25 via 110 Records, Inc. The disc is a film-score collaboration with Dave Eggar for the movie "War Story," which premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival.
Lee told MTV earlier the year that the music for "Aftermath" is unlike anything she's done before. She explained, "It's going to surprise my fans. It's not what you'd expect; the film is very dark, very introspective ... There are moments of playing, and it's musical, but there are a lot of moments where Dave and I just built walls of sounds, out of blaring cellos and trombones and synthesizers and harp, all on top of each other. Sort of creating new sounds. It's not, like, a soundtrack. it's an atmosphere."
Lee did write one new song for the film, called "Push the Button," about which she said, "It's very different for me, it's electronic; I did it all myself." She added, "This whole process has been really different, and freeing. Doing my band, it's always been a big deal, a lot of pressure, a lot of hoops to jump through and things to live up to ... [this] wasn't about production and singles and worldwide success, it's about the integrity of the art piece we're creating."
Lee said that she would like to score more films, explaining, "Dave and I were already talking about taking a meeting for another film, and I definitely want to work with him again."
