The compilation features 12 artists covering a song that had an important impact on their lives, with all proceeds benefitting mental health charities.
Hopeless Records has announced a compilation to be released later this year of 'Songs That Saved My Life'.
Songs That Saved My Life is a brand centered around music that played a pivotal role in the lives of artists and fans that benefits mental health and suicide prevention charities. Everyone has music that helped them through a tough time. STSML looks to engage current artists with cover versions of those songs and share those stories with the world. This project benefits a variety of mental health and suicide prevention organisations. Currently, this project benefits Crisis Text Line, Hope For The Day, The Trevor Project, and To Write Love On Her Arms.
