The powerhouse vocalist — the frontwoman of the band Evanescence, who rose to popularity in the early 2000s — is back nearly 15 years after the band released its hit song "Bring Me to Life."
Lee, now 35, just recently debuted the track "Speak to Me" for the film "Voice from the Stone" starring Emilia Clarke and Marton Csokas, due out April 28.
"I got to watch the film and immediately fell in love with it, I was a new mother at the time and a lot of the movie is about an extreme bond between a mother and son that's stronger than death, it's bigger than that you can't keep them apart," Lee told the Daily News.
She quickly came up with the song and it was completely recorded in just two weeks.
"This one really flew out just right away," she told The News.
Unfortunately, she didn't get to meet Clarke, despite being a major "Game of Thrones" fan.
"Who doesn't love 'Game of Thrones'?" she said, "She's a powerful bad--," she continued, describing Clarke's character, Daenerys Targaryen, on the hit HBO series.
The married mother of 3-year-old Jack Lion may have been out of the spotlight in recent years, but she hasn't been on a hiatus.
She's been working behind the scenes.
Lee worked on two scores, one for the film "War Story," in 2014 and another for the film "Blind," starring Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore, due out later this year.
The singer also used her experience as a new mom to release a kids' album last year with her family.
"He is the core inspiration of the whole thing," she explained of her son Jack.
And she's not stopping there. Last month, she also revealed that Evanescence was trying to make a third comeback by releasing the single "Even in Death" and she also shared another solo single "Love Exists" in February.
"We've been playing shows again since 2015 and we have an amazing new guitar player Jen in the band and it's the first time we ever had another female in the band…" she said.
"We're in a positive new place where we feel like anything is possible and that's really the reason for making new music."
Despite being in a popular rock band, the musician honestly said she doesn't listen to rock music that much.
"I love Tegan and Sara… I love that type of music," she explained. "I like anything that makes me feel a big feeling… that's why I like."
As for what's in store from Evanescence since their last comeback in 2011 — Lee says you'll just have to wait.
"We are working on something new that we plan to release this year…but it's not just a traditional new album it's something a little bit more elaborate," she said.
"If you can imagine it being more elaborate."

And the part about the next album is so exciting!!
To anyone that was wondering about her stance on the LGBTQ community, here you go! I don't think someone homophobic would listen to Tegan and Sara.
I don't think one's music taste necessarily coincides with one's morals and socio-political beliefs (I'm a Pantera fan, for example), but I agree that it certainly seems like further confirmation that she's very unlikely to be homophobic.
