What happens when two of rock’s biggest female singers join forces to rework one of their previously released tracks?
You get this gem.
On Friday (Aug. 7), Halestorm released a live version of their 2012 song, “Break In.” This time, the track not only features frontwoman Lzzy Hale singing the lyrics but also Evanescence’s Amy Lee.
The almost-five-minute clip features both Hale and Lee in the studio recording the track. But before you think the two musicians are violating any current regulations about distance due to the pandemic, this video was actually shot before we were all sent into lockdown.
“We recorded this duet pre-COVID-19, together in the same room, live, as a full performance from beginning to end,” Hale explains to Rolling Stone.
“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.”
Watch the live music video for “Break In” above.
This duet version of “Break In” will be featured on Halestorm’s upcoming EP, Halestorm Reimagined.
The six-song record will feature reworked versions of some of the band’s tracks, including “I Get Off” and “I am the Fire,” as well as a cover of Dolly Parton/Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”
Halestorm Reimagined is due out Aug. 14 through Atlantic Records. Pre-orders are currently available for purchase on Halestorm’s website.
