She’s back!! Amy Lee of Evanescence just released an intimate cover of Portishead’s “It’s A Fire.” Lee posted on her Facebook page, “This song (and all of Dummy, actually) was a huge inspiration to me in my formative years. I listened to the song recently for the first time in a long time, and fell in love with it all over again. The lyrics are so powerful, they helped me through so much. It is my honor to do this little homemade homage to a group I have loved so much for so long.” The video is the first posted to Lee’s just launched YouTube channel.
Fans will have to settle for this cover for now as they anxiously wait on a new album from the band. Evanescence has a handful of dates this fall, performing at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works on Nov. 13, Dallas’ South Side Ballroom on Nov. 15 and Los Angeles’ Wiltern on Nov. 17 before heading to Japan for their Ozzfest Japan appearance on Nov. 22.
