Grammy winner, Creed frontman, & platinum-certified solo artist, Scott Stapp has posted a lyric video for “Name” on his social platforms to highlight a song that pledges to break the cycle of abuse.

The track will appear on Stapp’s first album in six years, “The Space Between the Shadows”, and it is a chill-inducing promise to protect his children from what he endured in his own youth.

Stapp has performed the song live for select fans during radio visits and each performance has been met with pin-drop silence and standing ovations for lyrics like:
 
“I am a son without a father. He gave his name and walked away
I am a man, now a father. And I swear my son will never know that pain
I was a child, I was abandoned. Too young to fight to have a say
Oh God what seemed so heavy handed. Made me the man I am today
It’s so hard to forgive. Even harder to forget”

“Name” also gives the album its title, as Stapp vows to make his hard-learned lessons count:
 
“I will... I will... be the space between the shadows
I will... I will... be the light inside the sorrow”

“The Space Between the Shadows” was co-produced by Scott Stevens and Marti Frederiksen, with additional production on “Purpose for Pain” by Kevin “Thrasher” Gruft. The album was recorded at Sienna Studios and Poppy Studios in Nashville, TN and The Cabin in Los Angeles. It was mixed by Chris Baseford and mastered by Howie Weinberg and features ten original songs and two original bonus tracks.

Scott Stapp is known as a Grammy winning songwriter and frontman for Creed (over 50 million albums sold worldwide), and for his work as a solo artist who released the platinum-certified “The Great Divide” (2005) and “Proof of Life” (2013) which featured his first solo Billboard #1, “Slow Suicide”.

With a new outlook after the biggest fight of his life – five years sober and counting – one of rock’s biggest names roars on “Purpose for Pain”, the first song from Scott Stapp’s upcoming album “The Space Between the Shadows”. The album documents a five-year journey to find meaning – and redemption – in a world where shadows lurk and the space between is a gauntlet towards the light.

His evolution, both personally and professionally, now reflects a powerful vocal style from an artist with a strong sense of purpose in sharing the silver lining of his survival. As such, he is an inspiration to others who struggle with the often over-lapping illnesses of addiction and depression. Scott Stapp’s With Arms Wide Open Foundation helps military vets and their families with issues of drug addiction, PTSD-triggered mental health issues and suicide prevention. In 2017, the Florida Association of Broadcasters awarded Scott Stapp with the Florida Service Award and in 2018 he was inducted into the Florida Music Hall of Fame.
