Last month, Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee unveiled plans to release a children’s album which would feature original as well as well-known children’s songs. Earlier this month, she debuted the whimsical music video for the album’s title track, “Dream Too Much.” On Friday (Sept. 30), Lee released the music video for another song from the album; “If You’re a Star.” Like the clip for “Dream Too Much,” the video features the lyrics of the song coming to life. (Don’t be sad. The little sheep makes it home in the end.)
“The video is meant to illustrate that we’re never alone. That we’re not so different, all across the world,” Lee said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. “All you have to do is look up to remember that we are all under the same very big sky, maybe even wishing on the same star.”
Watch the music video for “If You’re a Star” below.
“If You’re a Star” will join “Dream Too Much” on Dream Too Much. Dream Too Much was officially released today, exclusively on Amazon Music. Dream Too Much features seven original songs as well as five kid-friendly covers including Sesame Street’s “Rubber Duckie,” The Beatles’ “Hello Goodbye,” and “Goodnight My Love.”
At the time of the album’s announcement, Lee had revealed that the record would be a family affair. Her father, uncle, siblings, and two-year-old son Jack all make appearances on the newly released album. “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.”
