Watch Evanescence Cover Bananarama’s ‘Cruel Summer’

Evanescence singer Amy Lee and guitarist Troy McLawhorn recently offered their version of Bananarama’s “Cruel Summer” for Germany’s MagentaMusik 360.

“I don’t know about you guys, but so many songs have seemed to have taken on a new and deeper meaning during this time, and that’s one of those for me,” Lee said after the performance. “I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you enjoyed our little performance. We can’t wait to play for you live in the flesh again, but until then, stay safe, be well and take care. We love you.”

Check out the performance below.

Last month, Evanescence shared their new single “Wasted On You” from their upcoming album, The Bitter Truth, which will be released later this year. The band plans on releasing the album “incrementally throughout 2020.”

In an interview with Music Week, Lee said that a handful of new Evanescence songs are completed and mixed, and while they’re “all different,” she added, “I think so far the one thing that ties them together is it’s going to a place that’s even more raw.”
