Tackling a classic like Fleetwood Mac‘s “The Chain” is always a gutsy move, but Amy Lee‘s powerful vocals are more than up for the challenge on Evanescence‘s cover.
The track was originally recorded as part of the soundtrack for the video game Gears of War 5, which came out back in September.
In a statement on the song, Lee said, “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. 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.”
Evanescence’s version of “The Chain” is available on all major streaming platforms now.
