Evanescence's Amy Lee has premiered her first original solo song, the electronica-inflected "Push the Button." The track will appear on 'Aftermath,' the soundtrack to the movie 'War Story,' which Lee scored with cellist and composer Dave Eggar. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Lee revealed that, for now and the immediate future, Evanescence are inactive:
The situation is we're not doing it now. I don't like to make predictions about the future, because I'm honestly open-minded, and I would never want to say I'm done with any of it, because it's a huge part of me. I've loved my time with Evanescence, I wouldn't want to just throw it away, but, for the foreseeable future, I don't have any plans to do anything with the band. It's really important to me to take some time to show some different sides of myself. I've said this all the way through Evanescence, especially on the second and third record: "I have the freedom to express myself completely within the band, so why would I want to do anything else?" And that's true only to an extent, because as much as I could go through a range of emotions, there's a certain expectation there. With the fans, with myself, I know what Evanescence is; it's an entity, it's bigger than just myself, which is awesome, but I can write a song and go "That is or isn't an Evanescence song," and they both happen. So there does need to be other outlets for me to make music.
