Evanescence have spent the last couple years discussing the inevitability of a new album. Three new songs — "Wasted on You," "The Game Is Over" and "Use My Voice" — and an album title — The Bitter Truth — already came this year and now fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the record will officially come out March 26 in 2021. A fourth single, "Yeah Right," has also just been released.

The Bitter Truth is the first original full length album from Evanescence since they dropped their self-titled record in 2011 with the Synthesis album (a reimagining of existing songs alongside a pair of new ones) serving as a stopgap between the two.

On "Yeah Right," singer Amy Lee takes a cynical jab at Evanescence's experience as a cog in the machine that is the music industry. On the track, which teeters between a restrained industrial groove and a free-flying chorus, Lee mocks the idea of fair financial compensation for the sacrifices artists make, understanding that it is likely to never happen.

Read the lyrics to "Yeah Right" directly below and listen to the song at the bottom of the page.

I’m the widow
On the tip tippy toppy of the highest high of low
And I’m the shadow
Of the first little flower on the brightest patch of snow
Happiness can be hard to find
I’m so slap silly happy everybody wants to take mine

Yeah right
That sounds nice
Everything we ever wanted and more
Someday we’ll get paid
More than it was worth to sell our souls
Yeah right

Yeah I’m a rock star
I’m a queen resurrected just as messed up as before
Twist the knife hard
Just makes it easier to tell you I don’t need you anymore

Life’s a game, till you lose- then what?
I’m reaching a new level of not giving a fuck

Yeah right
That sounds nice
Everything we ever wanted and more
Someday we’ll get paid more than it was worth to sell our souls
Tell me how is the real world treating you?
Is that my fault too?
My one mistake was giving more and more and more

Yeah right
Baby that sounds nice
Everything we ever wanted and more
Someday we’ll get paid
More than it was worth to sell our souls, sell our souls

Yeah right
That sounds nice
More than it was worth to sell our souls…
