Evanescence prepare new album with Steve Lillywhite
Generally, Dr. Dre leads the list of artists whose new albums -- despite their protests -- will probably never get released. Evanescence is a close second though, considering they put out their last album in 2006 and lost three of its five original bandmembers in 2006/2007.
But remaining drummer Will Hunt revealed to NME that the rock act, in fact, is very hard at work, and is completing its fourth set for release later this year. Veteran engineer Steve Lillywhite is producing, and Amy Lee just keeps sounding like Amy Lee.
There are "a lot of cool new things going on [the album], both electronically and futuristically. I think [Lee] is doing something that's very special and hasn't been done before... It's always going to sound like Evanescence, because it's Amy Lee singing. But the vehicle for that voice can be different and still be Evanescence. She is taking some real big risks and honestly, I think it's amazing!"
