As previously reported, Amy Lee will release a soundtrack for an indie film called Aftermath later this month. Now there's more good news for Evanescence fans: Lee says in a new interview with Rolling Stone , "I totally would and I probably will" play those new songs live. Though she didn't specify whether that would take the form of a proper tour, the statement is an optimistic one, especially since Lee has a newborn baby.
Lee says she's not daunted by the idea of performing music that's pretty un-Evanescence; in fact, just the opposite. "I've played to my own fans a lot," she said. "I really enjoy the opportunity to win people over for the first time. It's the coolest thing in the world."
Those feelings seem to apply to Lee's new recorded music as well. "My mantra is 'If I make something that I love, other people will love it [too],'" she said. "I can't think about what everybody wants because there's always going to be people that criticize whatever you do...if you're trying to please everybody you'll end up pleasing somebody, but if you don't please yourself then you'll be mad about it later. I'm proud to say I can listen to all the music I've made from the beginning and enjoy it."
