Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee continues to demonstrate her versatility on wide-ranging projects. The singer/songwriter just revealed a new song entitled "Speak to Me," written and recorded as the theme to the upcoming film Voice From the Stone.
"There are many reasons why I felt inspired to work on this project," Lee said in a statement. "Voice From the Stone tells the haunting story of Verena, a nurse who is asked to aid a young boy who has fallen silent after the sudden passing of his mother; Verena is brought in to help him speak again. As a new mother myself, the film resonated very deeply with me."
The supernatural psychological thriller, based on Silvio Raffo's novel of the same, stars Emilia Clarke and Marton Csokas and is set for a late April release.
"I had the opportunity to work closely with [director] Eric Howell and [composer] Michael Wandmacher," Lee explained. "I was very moved by the movie, and after having my first conversation with Eric and Michael, I felt a surge of inspiration and immediately began writing. It is a rare phenomenon to really share a creative vision so completely, and that made for a very powerful experience, and an end result that I am very proud of."
Lee recorded the cinematic song at Skywalker Ranch in Northern California and filmed the video in Tuscany. "We conceived the video as a parallel and backstory to the film, which explores the strong bond of love between Malvina and her son and the belief that love is stronger than death," she said.
