It's been nearly four years since Evanescence finished touring in support of their “The Open Door” album, but now they are officially back with a roaring new single “What You Want”.
“What You Want” is being serviced to radio and released on October 10. Recorded in Nashville’s Blackbird Studios, and produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, RUSH, Deftones), frontwoman Amy Lee describes the song as being “really different” from anything in the band's back catalogue. “What You Want” is most definitely a departure, the guitars buzz like a hornet's nest, the drums are pounding and primal, and the strings (arranged by Beck's father, David Campbell) swell and stab. Throw in a positively massive chorus and Lee’s beautiful melodies, profound lyrics, and poignant piano, and you've got a song that's powerful enough to shake the world to its very foundation.
“What You Want” deals with heady concepts, a trait that's readily apparent throughout Evanescence's new self titled album. “It's about freedom – that's definitely a constant theme on the record” Lee says, "and the chorus – ‘remember who you really are’ – that's exactly everything you could assume it means.”
