Amy Lee has spoken to “Loudwire Nights” about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the long-awaited follow-up to the band’s 2011 self-titled effort.
“This has been something where we are all in there together for most of the time so far,” she said (hear audio below).
“We’re in there with [producer] Nick Raskulinecz right now, who we’ve worked with before and loved working with before. He produced our self-titled album, which is really our favorite album. He also mixed [EVANESCENCE’s recent cover of the FLEETWOOD MAC song] ‘The Chain’.
“We’ve been in there kind of working as a team,” she reiterated. “The songs came from all different places. They’re not all in the same vein.
“We’re working on four songs right now. Originally, we were gonna go in there and just do two. I just wanna kind of do a few songs at a time, keep writing, go in and do a few more, release ’em one by one. But once we opened the can of worms, it kept growing. ‘Oh, we can’t do this one and not do this one. We have to do four.’ So, it’s four. So we’re working double hard to get it all done with the time that we have. But it’s going really great.” [Full Article]
