SCOTT STAPP: ‘Name’ Lyric Video
Written by megarock on May 25, 2019
Grammy-winning songwriter, CREED frontman and platinum-certified solo artist Scott Stappwill release his new album, “The Space Between The Shadows”, on July 19 via Napalm Records. Pre-order the album and get two instant-grat tracks — “Purpose For Pain” and “Name” — with two more to come — “Face Of The Sun” (May 31) and “Gone Too Soon”(July 12).
Stapp has posted a lyric video for “Name” to highlight a song that pledges to break the cycle of abuse. The track 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, Tennessee and The Cabin in Los Angeles. It was mixed by Chris Baseford and mastered by Howie Weinbergand features ten original songs and two original bonus tracks.
