Songs That Saved My Life
Music has the potential to be a powerful therapy, whether it’s for the artist or the listener. Many of us have connected with a song and taken from it that It’s Ok Not To Be Ok. The new compilation from Hopeless Records, Songs That Saved My Life (STSML) holds onto this concept: that music has the ability to bring us comfort in times when comfort seems far out of reach.
STSML gathers a powerhouse of artists and bands to record covers of songs that have impacted them greatly. The album features HFTD Partner in Prevention, Neck Deep, alongside Against Me!, Taking Back Sunday, and The Maine, reworking favorites by bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Death Cab For Cutie, and R.E.M.
The kicker is that the project benefits 4 mental health organizations including:
