General information

Written by: A. Lee

Overture is the first track from Evanescence's fourth studio album, Synthesis. The term "overture" means "an orchestral composition forming the prelude or introduction to an opera, oratorio, etc". It was confirmed to be on Synthesis when the tracklist was revealed through the album's pre-order on September 15, 2017.

The song was performed live for the first time at the Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 14, 2017 for the Synthesis Live tour.

In the songbook/tour program given to those who purchased VIP packages and available at the merch booth, Overture is explained as growing from Whisper.

We begin at the beginning. From a single note we grow into a progression from one of our very first songs, Whisper.

In a Synthesis track-by-track on Facebook, Overture is given another little explanation[1];
