General information

Written by: Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, John McVie and Stevie Nicks

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.[1] 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.[2] Amy said the following about covering this song:

Vin1.jpg 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! Vin2.jpg


On October 14th and 15th 2019, Evanescence posted several Instagram stories which showed the band recording the song in the studio - including guitars, drums, full orchestra and vocals from Amy and Troy.[3] Currently it's unknown whether this will be a single release or part of the band's fifth studio album. The producer of the song is Bobby Tahouri, an American composer of film, television, and video game scores. On October 25, 2019, Jen Majura went live on Instagram and confirmed that every member of the band has recorded vocals for the cover.

Lyrics

Fleetwood Mac version

Listen to the wind blow
Watch the sun rise
Running in the shadows
Damn your love, damn your lies

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)

Listen to the wind blow
Down comes the night
Running in the shadows
Damn your love, damn your lies
Break the silence
Damn the dark, damn the light

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)

Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)
Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)
Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)
Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)
Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)
Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)
