Evanescence’s Amy Lee Guests on Reimagined Halestorm Track, “Break In”


Halestorm have announced a new EP titled Reimagined, which features a handful of songs from the band’s catalogue reworked into new versions. The first single from that set is “Break In,” from the band’s 2012 album, The Strange Case Of…, featuring a guest vocal appearance by Evanescence’s Amy Lee. Lee and Halestorm singer and namesake Lzzy Hale would perform the song as a duet on tour several years ago, and now it’s available in proper recorded form. And I gotta say, it’s absolutely gorgeous; love to hear two of rock’s best vocalists nailing it together.

Hale explains of the track:

“It was such a blast to remake some of our favorite originals. One of the standout moments on this EP is a duet of our song ‘Break In’ featuring the amazingly incomparable Amy Lee. Produced by Nick Rasculinecz, we recorded this duet pre-COVID-19, together in the same room, live, as a full performance from beginning to end. Amy brought new meaning to this song, turning what was once just a love song into a statement of unity and support for each other. I hope you find something in ‘Reimagined’ that brings you joy and hope in these crazy times we live in!”
