Amy’s upcoming album will join the Amazon ever-growing library of original children’s and family music which streams exclusively on Prime Music, the new album is a collection of songs that encourage kids and adults to sing along together. Lee’s son and her own musical upbringing is was what led her to be inspired to create Dream Too Much, she even had her backing vocals sung by her siblings, and instrumentals played by both her father and uncle.
“This album is very personal to me,” said Amy Lee. “My husband and I had our first baby in 2014 and he has been the center of the inspiration for this children’s album. Every song on this album has a story — whether it’s an original for our son based on his favorite things or a song my dad used to sing to me when I was a little girl. I can’t begin to tell you how fulfilling this project has been and how proud I am to unveil it to listeners on Prime Music.”
Steve Boom, VP of Digital Music for Amazon, spoke on the upcoming album, stating “Our focus when developing originals is to provide unique collections that Prime members can’t find anywhere else,” he said, “Amy Lee’s versatility as an award-winning rock vocalist gave us an opportunity to rethink traditional children’s music and create an album that can be enjoyed by every member of the family. We can’t wait for Prime members to listen.”
