Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump Steps Into the 'Spotlight'
Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump may have one of the best voices in pop-punk, but it never really seemed like he was "owning" his frontman status in FOB. Now, with the release of his solo album "Soul Punk" this winter, Stump is stepping into the "Spotlight" -- literally.
The first "Soul Punk" song he's introducing to the world is called "Spotlight," a video for which hit the 'Net yesterday (Dec. 20).
Video: Patrick Stump, "Spotlight"
In the clip, Stump (impressively) performs the song one-man-band style, taking on keyboard, drum and vocal duties. If you thought his skills were under-rated, you'll be convinced after seeing this balancing act.
The final version of "Spotlight" can be voted on by fans via Stump's official website now, with two versions duking it out in a somewhat close battle.
Speaking about "Soul Punk" in a recent interview with MTV News, Stump said, "The album should be out in February and as can be inferred from the long delay, it's changed dramatically from the album I alluded to a year ago."
Stump added: "I just want to make sure I go to sleep at night knowing I'm not half-assing this."
