Evanescence may be ready to hit the touring circuit again, but before hitting the road in the fall, frontwoman Amy Lee has a project to release. Last month, the songstress announced plans to release a children’s album titled Dream Too Much in late September. On Wednesday (Sept. 7), Lee release the animated music video for the first single, and title track from the album, “Dream Too Much.” The three-minute clip features the array of characters featured in the song coming to life in the form of paper origami as they mimic the lyrics of the song. Watch the whimsical video below.
When Lee first announced plans to release the children’s album, she revealed that it would be a family affair with her father, uncle, siblings, and two-year-old son Jack making appearances on the record.
“This album is very personal to me. My husband and I had our first baby in 2014 and he has been the center of the inspiration for this children’s album,” explained Lee in a statement. “Every song on this album has a story – whether it’s an original for our son based on his favorite things or a song my dad used to sing to me when I was a little girl. I can’t begin to tell you how fulfilling this project has been.”
Dream Too Much will feature seven original songs as well as five kid-friendly covers including Sesame Street’s “Rubber Duckie,” The Beatles’ “Hello Goodbye,” and “Goodnight My Love.” Pre-orders for Dream Too Much are currently available on Amazon Music where the record will exclusively be released on Sept. 30.
