Yeah Right is the fourth track and fourth single from Evanescence’s fifth studio album, The Bitter Truth. The title was registered on BMI repertoire in late June 2020. It was one of the first four songs recorded for the album in early 2020. It was released on December 4, 2020 as a single, along with the album’s pre-order.
The song was originally recorded on the 2010 Lillywhite sessions for the band’s third album, but was scrapped by their then label, along with much of what they wrote and recorded for what would become their 2011 album, Evanescence. Amy explained it in an Instagram post and how it was revamped with a new perspective.
Yeah Right was a song I started 10 years ago with our good friend Will B. Hunt (the other one! Synthesis/DTM etc). After our self titled album went in a different direction and this song was set aside, I made a promise to myself that I wasn’t going to give up on it. I knew it was worth fighting for. Perspectives shifted, lyrics got a new twist, the stars aligned and it finally clicked into place for us as a band on this record. I couldn’t have imagined it like this back then, and I’m so glad we waited for it to become what it is now. I’m so proud! Thank you Will, thank you to my ferocious band for bringing the fire and to Nick Raskulinecz for pushing us to a whole new level.
