The Chain è una canzone dei Fleetwood Mac della quale gli Evanescence ne hanno fatto una cover per il videogioco Gears 5. Amy fu inizialmente invitata a registrare una corta versione della canzone per il trailer, ma non appena Amy vide la direzione dark, cinematica che il produttore Bobby Tahouri stava prendendo sentì subito il bisogno di registrarla per intero insieme alla band[1]. Il trailer del gioco contenente la traccia audio della cover fu pubblicato il 5 settembre 2019[2]. 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]. On October 25, 2019, Jen Majura went live on Instagram and confirmed that every member of the band has recorded vocals for the cover. Evanescence announced that the song will officially be released on November 22, 2019, however, some radio stations across the USA started playing the full song a few days early.

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.[4] 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


Amy Lee took part in a Reddit AMA, and this is what she said about recording The Chain:

Vin1.jpg Per quanto mi riguarda, una cover deve essere parecchio diversa dall'originale. Ci deve essere un nuovo pensiero, una nuova idea, una nuova prospettiva. Altrimenti, preferisco ascoltare direttamente l'originale. Dunque un'idea per una cover per me viene dall'amore di una canzone, e di avere il desiderio di ascoltarla in modo differente. I've referenced this a lot ma una delle mie cover preferire che mi ha insegnato questo concetto "Smells Like Teen Spirit" reinterpretata da Tori Amos. Sotto una nuova luce, dopo la tragica morte di Kurt, ascoltare quelle parole ricantate per intero, in modo chiaro e lentamente, con una nuova voce of loss- campia completamente il sentimento di rabbia, collera, persino divertimento- to incredibly heartbreaking. Risentitala in quel modo ti fa focalizzare su ciò che lui diceva in un modo totalmente diverso. Questo è ciò che mi ha condotto a questa canzone. Quando ho sentito che Bobby Tahouri avesse iniziato, the feel was so vastly different from the original, era come una nuova canzone. Oscura, dalle tinte infernali, instantly I was drawn in. And right away ho immaginato l'intera band entrare e and throwing down our current sound on that idea. Once we got the go ahead to do whatever we wanted, we just made it our own. We all jammed out in a room together and created an arrangement, then we started recording, and building and building and building till we were all satisfied. It was a blast![5] Vin2.jpg

Testo

Evanescence version

Listen to the wind blow
Down comes the night
Break the silence
Damn the dark, damn the light

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

Listen to the wind blow
Watch the sun rise
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 don't love me now)
You will never love me again (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 don't love me now)
You will never love me again (never love me again)
I can still hear you saying
You would 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
You would never break the chain

Chain keep us together
Chain keep us together
Chain keep us together
Chain keep us together
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

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
You would never break the chain

Evanescence version

You would never break the chain (never break the chain)

And if you don't love me now (you don't love me now)
You will never love me again (never love me again)

You would never break the chain

Video

Amy confirmed on Twitter that The Chain will get a music video. She jokingly stated "Now I find myself wondering if we need a flaming drum kit in The Chain video" after the incident at Knotfest Mexico.[6] The video was filmed on December 3, 2019 and some pictures on set were posted by Jen Majura and Tim McCord. Later on, the band and P.R. Brown posted pictures of a burning drum kit on set, confirming that P.R. has directed the video.
