Along with fronting symphonic rock band Evanescence, Amy Lee also occasionally contributes work to the soundtracks of feature-length films, such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, War Story, and Indigo Grey: The Passage. Her latest soundtrack offering is a brand new song, ‘Speak To Me’.
The song ‘Speak To Me’ is set to feature on the forthcoming film, Voice From The Stone, which stars British actress, Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones, Terminator Genisys, Me Before You), and was directed by Eric Howell.
You can stream and watch the video to accompany the track below:
Lee has also shared a message about the film, and her creative process behind the song and its accompanying video, “I’m very excited to share a new song which I was asked to create as the end title for the forthcoming film, Voice From The Stone, which stars the incredibly talented and captivating Emilia Clarke. The song is called ‘Speak To Me’.
There are many reasons why I felt inspired to work on this project. Voice From The Stone tells the haunting story of Verena, a nurse who is asked to aid a young boy who has fallen silent after the sudden passing of his mother- Verena is brought in to help him speak again. As a new mother myself, the film resonated very deeply with me. I had the opportunity to work closely with Eric Howell, who directed the film, and Michael Wandmacher, who composed the score. I was very moved by the movie, and after having my first conversation with Eric and Michael, I felt a surge of inspiration and immediately began writing. It is a rare phenomenon to really share a creative vision so completely, and that made for a very powerful experience, and an end result that I am very proud of.
It was an honour to be able to work with Eric on the music video as well, which was shot in Sienna, Italy, at the same beautiful location as the film. We conceived the video as a parallel and backstory to the film, which explores the strong bond of love between Malvina and her son, and the belief that love is stronger than death.”
Lee is currently in the studio with her band Evanescence, working on their new album which is expected to see a release later this year.
The film, Voice From The Stone, is set to see a release on April 28th 2017 in limited release, video on demand, and digital HD format.
