Evanescence is gearing up to release “Synthesis,” an album featuring re-imagined songs from the group’s discography with electronics and a full orchestra. The set will arrive on Nov. 10. In addition to the reworked songs, the album will feature two new tracks. One of those new songs, “Imperfection,” has a distinct electro-pop vibe. Listen to “Imperfection” via the YouTube player below.
“Imperfection” and the previously unleashed “Synthesis” version of “Bring Me to Life” are both available for download via the typical digital platforms. Lee explains in an official statement that “Imperfection” is “for all the people we’ve lost, all the people who we could lose, to suicide and depression.”
“For me, this is the most important song on the album,” Lee said. “I struggled with the lyrics for a long time because there was a lifetime of work to live up to and I wasn’t sure what to say or how to be good enough. When it finally started pouring out of me, it was undeniable.”
“We are all imperfect, and it’s precisely those imperfections that make us who we are, and we have to embrace them because there’s so much beauty in those differences,” she added. “Life is worth fighting for. You are worth fighting for.”
The other new song on “Synthesis” is called “Hi-Lo.” That song features famed Internet sensation and violinist Lindsey Stirling.
In other news, Evanescence is scheduled to headline a North American tour to promote “Synthesis” starting Nov. 14 in Las Vegas.
