Evanescence have released a brand-new cover of Fleetwood Mac's 1977 hit "The Chain," which is featured on the record breaking Xbox One game Gears of War 5.
"This cover was so fun to make. We love Fleetwood Mac and wanted to paint a dark and epic picture with our take on 'The Chain'," said vocalist Amy Lee. "The lyrics make me feel the power of standing together against great forces trying to pull us apart, perhaps even from the inside. I really wanted to drive that home in our version, and even made everyone in the band sing by the end of it! We’re beyond excited to share this with you and I’m really looking forward to playing it live."
While I'm partial to the original song, I still feel Evanescence still did a fine job with the cover, which features an orchestral backing and insanely powerful vocals from the always stunning Amy Lee. They did exactly what a band's supposed to do with a cover and made it their own.
Lee and crew are currently at work on their next studio album and will be playing Knotfest Mexico later this week (November 30th). In April 2020, the band will embark on a European tour with Within Temptation. Visit the band's official website for more tour updates.
Evanescence's cover of "The Chain" is now available to purchase as a digital single.
