Scott Stapp comes from honest place with “Proof of Life”


Scott Stapp is feeling pretty relieved today. It’s been eight years since he released his debut solo album, “The Great Divide,” and he’s finally ready to unveil the follow-up.

 “The seeds were planted in 2007. I just had a lot to go through and to get through in order for it to be born,” the Creed singer said about the album during a recent visit to “I’m glad it’s finally here. It’s a huge sense of accomplishment and I feel like almost a weight has been lifted that it’s finished.”

 His sophomore solo effort, titled “Proof of Life,” out Tuesday on Wind-up Records, consists of extremely personal songs, including lead single “Slow Suicide.” The personal nature of the music won’t come as too much of a surprise to fans who read Stapp’s 2012 memoir, “Sinner’s Creed.” The 40-year-old rocker has had a lot tap into from his own life for inspiration — from his fundamentalist upbringing and the rise of Creed to his battle with addiction and the rediscovery of his faith.
