Creed frontman Scott Stapp is now streaming his new butt rock ballad "What I Deserve" from his upcoming solo album Higher Power. The song is one of three to feature guitarist Yiannis Papadopoulos, so expect some shreddy solos throughout the album. Other than that, it's Stapp doing all his yarly vocals overtop radio-friendly rock that've made him into the household name he is today.
"We all want back what we give," said Stapp. "'What I Deserve' is about two people understanding who they are individually and coming to a place where they can express exactly what they each want, need, and deserve. The duality in the song is that both sides are expressing the same thing and coming to an understanding of the faults of the other. This song pleads both guilty and innocent with Yiannis’ guitar solo being the voice that articulates a chaotic search for deliverance and the epic release of passionate closure."
Stapp continued: "Higher Power was born out of never ending consequences with triggered, yet naive defiance. It's the realities and realizations of being human in this experiment we call life – holding onto hope in the dark waiting for the light."
Higher Power also features vocalist Dorothy on the song "If These Walls Could Talk" and co-writing by Steve McEwan. Higher Power is out March 15, with pre-orders available here.
