Evanescence have shared the official video for their new single, ‘Hi-Lo’, which can be viewed above here. The clip, which was directed by P.R. Brown, includes a guest performance by famed violinist Lindsey Stirling.
‘Hi-Lo’ is one of two new songs that are included on Evanescence’s latest album, Synthesis. As uDiscover Music previously reported, the set is a re-imagining of some of Evanescence’s best-loved tracks and the record is the band’s first full-length effort since their 2011 self-titled release.
Evanescence singer Amy Lee told Donny Fandango of the St. Louis radio station 105.7 The Point about ‘Hi-Lo’: “We’ve had in the bank for a long time. I wasn’t quite finished [writing it before], but it’s just a song that never fit anywhere that I’ve been holding on to and waiting to find its right home for 10 years.
“So it’s this weird thing that I feel very close to already that I’ve had to listen to with my family and my friends to now finish it out and have the orchestra on it,” she continued.
“That’s what it needed — it needed that beautiful, luscious emotion that [long-time collaborator, orchestra arranger and composer] David Campbell put on there. But I wrote that song with our producer on this album, the guy that did all the programming, Will [Hunt, not to be confused with Evanescence’s drummer, also named Will Hunt]. It was our first collaboration together 10 years ago.”
Evanescence and Lindsey Stirling are also about to team up for a co-headlining 2018 summer amphitheater tour across North America. The trek, produced by Live Nation, will kick off on July 6 in Kansas City, Missouri at the Starlight Theatre and will make stops in 31 North American cities. The trek is set to conclude on 8 September in Ridgefield, Washington at the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater.
Both artists’ shows will be accompanied by a full orchestra, highlighting both acts’ musicality and performance abilities. The orchestrated performances will also perfectly accent the astounding amphitheater venues across the US and Canada that the two will be performing in.
