Read this: "I needed to face the abyss head on": Evanescence’s Bitter Truth laid bare
"I get inspired by all kinds of things, even if it’s just in the way that somebody arranged the songs. Like, 'Oh, they didn’t end on the chorus. Why don’t we do something like that?'"
Last year, Amy discussed how – as well as generally being a fan of the band – working with Horizon helped her get through writer's block.
"…While I’d been very busy working on our album, and getting a little bit stuck on some of the words, they sent me this track to work on [One Day The Only Butterflies Left Will Be In Your Chest As You March Towards Your Death], and it was such a beautiful escape and release for me," she told Revolver. "It felt like something I wasn’t supposed to do, like my secret little side thing, and it really was just so fulfilling to go back and forth, to collaborate, to have all these conversations everyday with Oli [Sykes, frontman]. It felt beautiful to finish something. It was the boost and the inspiration to take the Evanescence music with a new satisfaction and fuel, where I’d just been frustrated before."
Evanescence’s The Bitter Truth is released on March 26 via Sony Music.
