Evanescence reveal more album details

Evanescence's Amy Lee believes that she is making the "best album of her life".

The singer, who recently revealed that the band have started recording an electro-influenced album, revealed that they have been busy in the studio.

"(I feel) like I'm making the best album of my life," she told Billboard. "I feel like so much has already happened. I don't even know where to begin to try to describe it,'cause it's just so many things at once. I'm really excited. I know that seems weird to say, but I wouldn't be here in the studio making another record if I didn't think it was going to be better than anything I've ever done."

The 28-year-old also insisted that the new album, the follow-up to 2006's Open The Door, still has the band's familiar sound. "It wouldn't be an Evanescence album if it didn't sound somewhat like Evanescence," she added. "I feel like our band has always had programming and inspirations from Bjork and Depeche Mode and Massive Attack and that kind of thing. It's not like we're making one of those records; it's just, like, that is playing a bigger role in the sound of Evanescence this time."

Lee said the group, which also includes guitarist Terry Balsamo and bassist Tim McCord, are recording about 16 songs for the unnamed LP. "Some of them aren't finished lyric-wise or writing-wise, but I really feel like it's mostly there."
