The wait is over! After 4 long years, finally all of us, Evanescence fans, will have to wait no more because Evanescence is dropping a new single PRETTY SOON (early August)! It is called What You Want and thanks to MTV News here we have a sneak peak of how the new single sounds! And it frickin' rocks!

First, here is what Amy Lee had to say about Evanescence's first single What You Want, of upcoming album, which will be in stores by October 11:
"[Bassist] Tim [McCord] and [guitarist] Terry [Balsamo] and I wrote that song at my house in New York. We were just jamming, like, recording demos, and obviously the song has grown a lot since then, with everyone else, for me, it was — and I need to remember this, so I can apply it in the future — it wasn't trying so hard to be some epic, massive chorus. I was just doodling around on the piano and the guys were like, 'Do that. Whatever you just did, that's an awesome melody.' And I was like, 'Really?' Sometimes you just need your friends to be like, 'Do that!' " 
"It's about freedom — that's definitely a constant theme on the record — but, it's like Evanescence, and me, and my relationship with the music and the fans, and coming to that [realization] of 'This is what I'm supposed to do ... I want to do this,, and when it says, 'Remember who you really are,' that's exactly everything you could assume it means." 
"I feel like, not that I'm trying to do what's important for the music industry, I'm doing what I want — we're doing what we love. But, at the same time, it's so refreshing for us to play music that we want to hear," she explained. "It rocks, and not that there's nothing going on that does, but less and less; that's definitely not what's dominating the airwaves. And it would be so amazing and it's totally our dream to have that happen for us; not even just for us, but, like, we want to hear rock music again". 
"I think that, as a band, we're really strong. Everybody's just playing at the top of their game right now, they're just putting it all in ... and it was, like, that mentality the whole time we were working. Like, whatever it takes to make the most amazing thing possible." SOURCE.
And here is what MTV News had to say about the new single:
"Frontwoman Amy Lee had previously described the song as being "really different" from anything in the band's back catalog, and, as you can tell, she wasn't kidding. "What You Want" is most definitely a departure, quite possibly the heaviest song Evanescence have ever made. The guitars buzz like a hornet's nest, the drums are pounding and primal, and the strings (arranged by Beck's dad, David Campbell) swell and stab. Throw in a positively massive chorus and Lee's vocal pyrotechnics, and you've got a song that's powerful enough to shake rock radio to its very foundation". SOURCE.
So there you have it, Amy Lee and the whole band are quite excited about the new material and so am I! Cannot wait to hear the new music, and just hearing What You Want intrigues me a bit! I need to hear it full!
