Evanescence – “What You Want”

Evanescence have debuted a music video for “What You Want.” The track is taken from the band’s upcoming self-titled album, which is due out October 11 via Wind-up Records.

“This video is sort of, like, the history of the band,” frontwoman Amy Lee told MTV News. “This club [set] is emulating old shows we used to play in the beginning — we used to play this club called Vino’s in Little Rock [Arkansas] — it’s sort of like back then, the gritty, dirty club, sweaty. And basically, it’s also [about] New York, where I’ve been, [and] where [bassist] Tim [McCord] lived in the past few years since we’ve been gone. And it’s sort of about escaping New York and … coming back out into the world.”

She continued, “This is more a personal video. 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.”
