Amy Lee & Dave Stewart share video for collaborative “Love Hurts” cover; single dropping Friday

Bay Street Records

Evanescence‘s Amy Lee and Dave Stewart of Eurythmics have premiered a video for their collaborative cover of The Everly Brothers‘ “Love Hurts.”

The black-and-white clip features close-ups of the two artists as they dig into the emotion of song, which was first recorded by The Everly Brothers in 1960 and was later covered by “Hair of the Dog” rockers Nazareth in the ’70s.

You can watch the video streaming now on YouTube.

Lee and Steward first debuted the “Love Hurts” cover during a virtual Everly Brothers tribute concert last weekend. The single will be officially released on digital outlets this Friday, June 24.

“A few weeks back Dave Stewart called and asked if I wanted to collaborate on the iconic Everly Brothers song, ‘Love Hurts,'” Lee says. “We clicked like magic and obsessed over it until it became this crazy new thing. I’m beyond excited about our new friendship and our new track.”

“My collaboration with Amy happened by chance, but turned into a magical adventure,” Stewart adds. “She’s a creative force and we work so well together. We quickly realized our version sounded nothing like the original but once we started, we couldn’t stop!”
