Creed will tease the Nov. 20 release of its third studio album with the single "My Sacrifice," which hits U.S. radio outlets today (Oct. 10). As tipped here in June, the Wind-Up album, "Weathered," was produced by the group with longtime collaborator John Kurzweg. It's the follow-up to "Human Clay," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 in October 1999 and has been certified for shipments of 10 million copies in the U.S. by the Recording Industry Association of America.

"From a lyrical standpoint it is dark, much like 'My Own Prison,'" lead singer Scott Stapp said in a chat with fans on Creed's official Web site. "Musically the harder songs are harder, the epic songs are more epic, it's extreme highs and extreme lows. It's everything we've done so far turned up times 10, but also we're progressing and trying some different things."

The group has also made available a downloadable "pager" from its Web site, which includes a free download of "My Sacrifice," video footage of Creed in the studio, and news and tour announcements.
