The Evanescence singer has posted this update:
“Hey everybody!!!! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, but everything is going SO GREAT in the studio. I can hardly contain my excitement for this record, and I’m happier than I’ve been in so long I can’t remember.
“I wanted to make sure everyone knows that I DO NOT have any music in [the upcoming film] ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’. I did write music for it, that I love very much, but it was rejected for the movie because it was ‘too dark’ and ‘too epic.’ My darlings, if I can’t write dark, epic music, I can’t live.
“I thought about it for awhile, and then finally decided that I simply will not compromise my art for anything. It is very sad, though, because I think the movie is going to be amazing. It’s really good – I just don’t want you guys to go and see it and be let down because you thought our music was in there. Oh well, more great stuff for the album.
“I’M SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!! And I’m so glad we took the extra time to make this record right. You’re gonna love it.”
