'What You Want' continues in the vein that the Arkansas rockers have made their trademark, with a surging guitar riff built around Amy Lee's pseudo operatic vocals.

She told Kerrang!:
I can really hear myself singing about my relationship with Evanescence and with the fans. There's always one big relationship on a record that I sing about the most. I feel like my big relationship on this album with Evanescence itself, and with the fans.
