Scott Stapp Drops Lead Single, Announces Summer Tour

Former Creed frontman Scott Stapp released “Purpose for Pain,” the lead single from his upcoming album The Space Between The Shadows, his first new solo music since Proof of Life in 2013.

According to a social media post, Stapp said “Purpose for Pain” carries a lot of meaning as he comes out of a dark season.

“[The song] is about seeking a higher meaning, a spiritual mentality when dealing with our struggles and life’s painful moments,” said Stapp. He continued by explaining that everyone goes through dark times and deals with pain of one kind or another throughout life. “If we can dig deep and hold on to hope during the most difficult situations, believing there is a purpose waiting for us on the others side, we can find meaning and clarity that gives us the strength to keep fighting.”
