Hear Evanescence’s New Single ‘Wasted On You’

Evanescence gives us a taste of their upcoming album, The Bitter Truth, with their new single “Wasted On You.”

Speaking about the song in a statement, frontwoman Amy Lee says “We were recording this music right up until we couldn’t go into the studio anymore, and finished it remotely through file-sharing and phone calls. Tweaking mixes, adding background vocals, creating the video and album art all from home has been like water in the desert for me, my light in a dark time. We are still writing and have a lot more work to do on this album, but this time we wanted to release the songs individually, as we create, to live more in the moment with our fans and our music.”

They also shared a homemade video to go along with the song. The clip, directed by P.R. Brown, shows each member of the band dealing with the loneliness they feel while isolated in their homes. Everyone filmed their part on their phones and sent the footage to Brown. Watch the video below.

Evanescence announced their fifth album, The Bitter Truth, last week on social media. According to a press release, The Bitter Truth will be released “incrementally throughout 2020.”
