"Cinnamon" is a song by American rock band Stone Temple Pilots. "Cinnamon" is the sixth track off the band's sixth studio album, Stone Temple Pilots, released in 2010. The song was the album's third single, after "Take a Load Off". Two music videos were filmed for "Cinnamon," however neither one was officially released but can be viewed on YouTube. This was also the band's final single with Scott Weiland before he was fired and subsequently replaced with Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington.

Composition[edit]

Lead singer, Scott Weiland, considered "Cinnamon" to be a combination of '60s British pop and Ian Curtis (of Joy Division).[1] Weiland's lyrics were directly influenced by his relationship with his ex-wife.[1]
