Evanescence singer Amy Lee is leaving behind her emo-rock roots and is releasing a children's album.

She's just released the video for the title track Dream Too Much, in which her voice sounds exactly how you remember it but now she's singing about grapes falling from the sky and dreaming big instead of being brought to life.

Lee's Dream Too Much was inspired by her two-year-old son Jack and is a gift to her father who played music to her as a child.

The recording sessions were a family affair with Lee's dad on ukulele, banjo and dobro and her sisters adding vocals, guitar, bass and harmonica.

The singer told Rolling Stone: "We've been saying, even if we're the only ones who ever heard it ... it was worth it because it means so much to us as a family and we love it.

"I'm always looking for ways that I can expand myself creatively and this was a surprise. This kind of came out of a very random place and a very pure place. It was just for ourselves and it turned into something really beautiful."

Dream Too Much will be available as an Amazon Music exclusive on September 30.
