Evanescence singer Amy Lee's solo effort "Aftermath" is available for streaming online. Check it out below.
The album, written by Amy and Dave Eggar, is a score for the movie "War Story," which premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival.
As you may hear, this is completely not like anything Amy did with Evanescence. This album is an instrumental piece, featuring EDM elements, arabic tunes and string tracks.
"It's going to surprise my fans. It's not what you'd expect; the film is very dark, very introspective," she told MTV earlier this year. "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."
The album opens with Amy Lee's new song, "Push the Button."
"It's very different for me, it's electronic; I did it all myself," she said about the song, adding: "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."
Well, enough talking, go check out "Aftermath" below!
