NEW MUSIC: EVANESCENCE | ACROSS THE UNIVERSE (BEATLES COVER)

They added the studio recording of the cover to the deluxe version of their latest LP, "The Bitter Truth." which went No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Hard Rock Albums chart. “Across the Universe” could be called a spiritual song. It is a song about life’s struggles, but Lennon insists that “Nothing’s gonna change my world.” The added Hindu mantra “Jai guru deva, om” roughly translates to “Victory to God Divine.” Amy Lee’s passionate singing brings out the genuine emotions of this song. It provides a sense of peace. It reminds listeners of a Disney soundtrack. Evanescence’s cover. In The Beatles’ version of “Across the Universe,” listeners can hear the soft, melodic background vocals of McCartney, Harrison, and Lennon. The cadence is a bit faster, and the strumming of the guitar is front and center in the song. Amy Lee’s vocals and piano are the most apparent instruments in the Evanescence cover. From their graphic novels to covering a hit by The Beatles, Evanescence is unstoppable.
