EVANESCENCE SINGER RELEASING FILM SCORE THIS MONTH

Evanescence singer Amy Lee will release a new album called Amy Lee Featuring Dave Eggar: Aftermath on August 25th via 110 Records, Inc. The music on the disc is a film score that Lee collaborated with Eggar on for the movie War Story, which premiered last January at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Lee told MTV News earlier this year that the score was unlike anything she had ever done before, explaining, "It's not what you'd expect; the film is very dark, very introspective . . . it's musical, but there are a lot of moments where Dave and I just built walls of sounds, out of blaring cellos and trombones and synthesizers and harp, all on top of each other. Sort of creating new sounds. It's not, like, a soundtrack. it's an atmosphere."

Lee wrote one new song for the film, called "Push The Button," and called the entire project "really different, and freeing."

Long before recently becoming a first-time mother, Lee told us that transitioning to full-time composing for films would be an ideal job for her: "I love scoring, so I'd love to do that. That would be fun. Like, if I ever wanna, like, be a mom and work at home, it'd be so awesome to just have a studio in my house and just work on scoring stuff. Not have to tour."

Lee gave birth to her first child, a son named Jack Lion, on July 24th. Lee has been married to Josh Hartzler, a therapist, since May 2007. The couple live in New York City.

The most recent Evanescence album, a self-titled effort, came out in 2011. The band has been inactive since mid-2012.

Lee also announced earlier this year that she and Evanescence were free of their previous recording contract with Wind-Up Records, which had been sold to Concord Music Group.
