Okay so I didn't want to bump an old thread so here's a new one. So since the old one closed we now know:

Amy Lee has Twitter
Evanescence are Still together
They are having a concert in Brazil
They are bringing out a new album
Amy Lee is bringing out a cover of The Muppets

And... On her twitter we see a new picture of her and she's in great shape!

NEW SONG! ZOMG! :cln:

5EDlwlM8pb8

Never thought that I'd be leaving you today
so alone and wondering why I feel this way
so wide the world
can love remember how to get me home to you
someday

We'll be together again
All just a dream in the end
We'll be together again

So many fears were swimming around and around in my mind
Who would have dreamed the secrets we would find

I've found a world
where love and dreams and darkness all collide
maybe this time
we can leave our broken world behind

We'll be together again
All just a dream in the end

Its not from the new album if that's what your thinking. Its a song that didn't make it onto The Open Door back in 2006. They just released it now for the Haiti fundraiser.

By the way, I almost cried when I read why Amy released that song. I am so sensitive these days! :o

On EvClub Amy explains the reason of publishing the song:

Hey guys. I posted this blog on EvClub last night, and I just thought it should be here too...

Pain is a big part of life. It is the thing that brings us to earth, keeps us tightly connected to each other. I've never felt closer to people than in times of great sorrow or distress, and I guess this is what connects us, people all over the world, to people in Haiti right now. We are the same creatures with the same heart, and as strong as we may feel sometimes, we are completely helpless to the brokenness of this world. Bad things happen. Sometimes its nobody's fault. But the pain that we feel should make us better.... more sensitive to others and more concious of our own impact on their lives. No matter what we give, people around the world will hurt just like we do. But maybe that's the point, and just for us to try to connect to that pain instead of shutting it out, is what makes us human. Thank you, all of you, for donating generously the way that I know alot of you have been. Sometimes it takes something like this to put it all in perspective. The next record- awesome. So excited about it. But really, on a grand scale, who ****ing cares. There are people dying all around us- emotionally as well as literally. That sentiment is exactly what made me begin to write music and poetry in the first place, as a kid. So again, for me that is the point, the reason, the connection. We need each other, plain and simple. So, (deep exhalation of emotional release) about the song- As most of you know, "Together Again" is a song written during the Open Door era. I have always loved it and wanted to find the perfect home for it. It wasn't at home in the Narnia movie, it didn't belong on The Open Door, and of all the other nameless opps that came up in between then and now it didn't fit there either. The recording you are hearing was made in 2005-6 along with the rest of the record. About a week ago (a couple of days after hearing about the recent events in Haiti) Josh woke up (before me as usual) and told me that he thought maybe this was where the song belonged. I was at first skeptical on my ability to put all the pieces together and make it a reality, but I think everyone around me was just wishing for a way to help too. My manager, Andy, immediately jumped on board and started making calls. My label agreed to donate their share, my publishing company did the same, even Ted Jensen (who is a very well known mastering artist) cut the fee down to virtually nothing so it was very quick and easy to get the song finished. I am very proud to say that all of the money that is donated for the download of our song except for the credit card transaction fee is going to Haiti. Its a cool way to think about it- maybe the reason it never fit anywhere else is because it belonged here, all along, for this purpose. I hope and believe that we are making a real difference together. Thank you guys again, for caring, for listening to me, and for just being fans. Thank you... to those who no matter how much pain you've felt, still remain strong enough to feel more.

love, Amy.

And here's Amy's artwork for the song "Together Again".

Sorry to double post, but just wanted to share a few videos that hint at the musical style for the new album.



- Jamming session containing a demo sample (posted by Tim):
http://www.twitvid.com/C2E40

- Recording session feat. a song that was being recorded (posted by Amy):
http://www.twitvid.com/96BB7

- Piano piece for another song (posted by Amy):
http://www.twitvid.com/97672

A new song titled Your Love was performed acoustically for an episode of "Legends and Lyrics" expected to air sometime in 2010.

Also when Spin.com interviewed Amy About the new album, she explained that the first song she wrote with Will is called Hi-Lo.

While Amy Lee was on a radio station that Steve Lillywhite hosted, she announced a new song title, You've Got A Lot To Learn.


About Hi-Lo, Amy said :
"Hi-Lo." It's a working title. It's going in an electro-pop direction -- there are no organic instruments. It's a Portishead or Massive Attack direction, and lyrically it's about moving on, but in a very non-confrontational, non-angry way. It's just, "Hey, everything that happened, I'm over it and I'm not mad at you."

Regarding Your love (according to someone that attended the Legends And Lyrics recording event):
"For Amy’s final song of the evening, it was a surprise and an honor to be privy to her new song, one that had not yet been performed for a public audience. From the first few notes and syllables uttered, Lee held the crowd, including Gavin DeGraw and Dwight Yoakam, in the palm of her hand. The piece, entitled Your Love, was described as being about love that cannot work. It took a few moments for the spell to wear off once the song was over.
It is reported that "Your Love" is a working title for the song. "


Also, in terms of what to expect from the sound of the third album, Amy said:


" I don't want to give away too much about what it will sound like, because so much will change before the end, but its... not what you would expect. Its definitely not happy married music, but its not like I'm dying the whole time either. Its dark, sarcastic, fun, strange, familiar and very different at the same time. "

-----------------------------------------------------


I'm excited but anxious, especially after hearing some samples :o!
