Evanescence releasing Fleetwood Mac cover Friday

Credit: P.R. BrownEvanescence is releasing a cover of the Fleetwood Mac classic "The Chain" this Friday.

The performance was recorded for the new video game Gears 5. You can hear frontwoman Amy Lee sing a snippet of "The Chain" in a commercial for the game.

In addition to the cover, new, original Evanescence music is also in the works. Speaking to Kerrang! in an interview published in October, Lee says that the band hopes to have a new album done "at some point next year."

Evanescence's most recent studio release is 2017's Synthesis, which featured reworked versions of songs from throughout the band's catalog, recorded with electronic and orchestral elements. Their last all-original album was 2011's Evanescence.
