LISTEN: Scott Stapp Debuts 'Name'
Scott Stapp has released “Name,” a powerful song about breaking the cycle of abandonment.
“I am a son without a father / He gave his name and walked away,” the Creed frontman sings. “I am a man, now as a father / and I swear my son will never know that pain.”
The track comes from The Space Between The Shadows, Stapp’s first album in six years (out July 19), and follows last month’s release of debut single “Purpose For Pain.”
The 45-year-old singer went through some dark times, including a breakdown in 2003, a suicide attempt in 2006, and a domestic assault arrest in 2007.
The rocker has been open about an addiction to prescription drugs that began while on tour with Creed and a diagnosis of bipolar disorder.
