It’s been six long years since we’ve heard anything new at all from Evanescence. We’ll have to wait until they drop new album ‘Synthesis’ later this year for that, but until then the band have just released and re-worked and re-arranged version of debut single and global hit, ‘Bring Me To Life’.
The band’s forthcoming ‘Synthesis’ album will be composed of tracks from across their back catalogue which have been re-worked and re-imagined with brand new arrangements and the inclusion of an orchestra and/or electronica. It will also feature 2 brand new songs.
For their new take of ‘Bring Me To Life’, the band have stripped away the distorted guitars and drums, and instead replaced it with strings and horns.
You can stream and listen to ‘Bring Me To Life (Synthesis)’ in full below.
Originally released back in the Spring of 2003, ‘Bring Me To Life’ featured guest vocals from Paul McCoy of 12 Stones, was the band’s first single and first cut from their studio album, ‘Fallen’.
The single reached #5 on the US Billboard Hot 100 as well as becoming their first UK #1 hit single, and ‘Fallen’ sold more than 17 million copies worldwide, hitting the #1 spot on the UK albums chart and is currently certified 4x Platinum.
The band’s upcoming forth studio album, ‘Synthesis’, is scheduled to see a release this Autumn.
