The Chain is a song by Fleetwood Mac that Evanescence covered for the video game Gears 5. The teaser trailer containing Amy's vocals was published on September 5, 2019. When the band were on their Fall 2019 European tour, Amy confirmed to fans at a meet and greet that the band will get together after the tour to finish recording the full song.
Amy and Xbox have redefined the classic Fleetwood Mac song to embody the dark threat of Kait (the game's protagonist)'s abuser, the evil Queen Myrrah, calling out and threatening her. As Kait nears the end of the journey in the spot, she stands, revs her Lancer, and fights back against her abuser. The lyrics help drive the narrative, as each line corresponds with the chaotic journey Kait is experiencing, both in the desert and in her own mind. Amy said the following about covering this song:
|I'm proud to lend my voice to this reimagining of “The Chain” for Gears 5. I was drawn to the story of Kait overcoming fear and standing up to fight. Her story of breaking out with her own voice is most definitely one I relate to!|
On October 14, 2019, Evanescence posted an Instagram story which shows the band recording the song in the studio. Currently it's unknown whether this will be a single release or part of the band's fifth studio album. The next day, they posted more Instagram stories which shows that Troy McLawhorn is also providing vocals, and a full orchestra was used for the song.
