On Friday, Evanescence will release a new record called Synthesis. The only original member of the band still standing is vocalist Amy Lee and for this new record she has included the 2003 Much mega Hit “Bring Me To Life.” But song has a new arrangement and as Fader points out the song is now performed the way Lee originally intended.
She said in an older interview, “I remember having many talks with the suits…the powers that were, about [my femininity] being a negative thing. There’s nothing like this on the radio right now — how are we going to break you in?”
She said that the rap verse in the song was a compromise that she was forced to do to get the record out.
Who knows… back in 2003 maybe her original version may have never hit…maybe it would have. But now in 2017 she is putting the song out as she originally envisioned.
