Evanescence dropped their fourth studio album “Synthesis” seven months ago. It includes two new songs: “Imperfection” and “Hi-Lo”.
The latter featuring violinist Lindsey Stirling has a music video directed by P.R. Brown, who worked with Alicia Keys, Jack White, Miley Cyrus and many more.
The clip is a live performance filmed during the band’s critically acclaimed Synthesis tour.
Originally intended to be on Evanescence’s self titled album, the track was written ten years ago by Amy Lee and Will Hunt.
In an interview, the talented artist opened up about the collaboration with Lindsey Stirling and how it came to be.
“I respect her creatively so much. It’s always inspiring to me to watch somebody truly pave their own way – there is only one Lindsey Stirling! Once we got most of ‘Hi-Lo’ recorded, it had this interesting long instrumental part without a lead vocal point. Instead of doing what I usually do and writing vocals to go on top of it, I thought it would be a perfect moment for a guest solo. I had a couple of people in mind but Lindsey was the obvious, natural choice. She was in LA and we were recording at Spaceway in Ft Worth, so after telling her what I imagined she demo-ed out her part and it was already fantastic. Then she recorded it and we got the track back and were so excited. It took it exactly where I wanted it to go. She’s a beast!”.
“Synthesis” album debuted at number 8 in U.S and reached top twenty in several countries (Germany, Austria, Spain, Greece).
