Evanescence leader Amy Lee is forging a new career path: She’s releasing a kid’s album!
The 34-year-old singer-songwriter and new mom tells Rolling Stone that her debut children’s LP, Dream Too Much, will be released on Sept. 30 as an Amazon exclusive. The 12-song release will include Lee’s takes on “Rubber Duckie,” “Hello Goodbye” and “Goodnight My Love,” as well as originals like the title track and “The End of the Book.” The album will not include a version of Evanescence’s “Call Me When You’re Sober.”
“Who knows, maybe I'll be the next Raffi,” says Lee, who is mom to a two-year-old son, Jack. “I can imagine us doing some isolated performances here and there but I think, really, I'm going to focus on the next thing being ... more centered around my adult music career.”
Evanescence headed on hiatus soon after the release of their 2011 self-titled album, but performed a few times internationally in 2015. In February, Lee released Recover Vol. 1, a four-song covers EP.
