Go Inside Evanescence’s ‘What You Want’ Video
As the countdown to new Evanescence continues, the band has just filmed the music video for, “What You Want,” off their forthcoming self-titled, third release. Amy Lee and company shot the video last Saturday (July 30) inside a Brooklyn warehouse.
Whereas Evanescence’s most recent videos have focused on imaginary situations (ala the snowy, picturesque "Lithium" and “Call Me When You’re Sober”), this one, Lee says, is different.
"This is more a personal video,” she told MTV News. “We've done a lot in the past that [were] very 'fantasy,' and this is sort of the real us. I just wanted to do something that really felt personal for a change. Obviously, I'm wearing crazy makeup, and that's not my everyday, but, you know, I want ... to connect with the fans again. We all do. We miss them. A lot of this record is about them, and that's why they're going to be here and be in it, too."
Meiert Avis, who has directed videos for U2 and Bob Dylan, guided the shots for “What You Want,” while Nashville producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver) produced the upcoming album. Expect the effort to arrive October 11.
