The Maine have released their cover of "Transatlanticism" (originally made famous by Death Cab For Cutie). The song is taken from Songs That Saved My Life, a brand centered around music that has played a pivotal role in the lives of artists and fans and that benefits mental health and suicide prevention charities. The compilation will be released this Friday, November 9 through Hopeless Records and includes covers from bands like Neck Deep, Against Me!, Taking Back Sunday, Dan Campbell and Ace Enders, Movements, The Maine, Dance Gavin Dance, and more.  Full track listing can be found below. 

Speaking to their cover of "Transatlanticism", lead singer John O'Callaghan said, "This song didn't single-handedly save any of our lives, but it certainly changed them in a major way. We attempted to stay out of our way and tried to maintain the integrity of the arrangement and vibe of the tune so as to not ruin it for ourselves (or hopefully any who listen). We hope you enjoy!"

Songs That Saved My Life 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 organizations. Currently, this project benefits Crisis Text Line, Hope For The Day, The Trevor Project, and To Write Love On Her Arms.

In September, the Songs That Saved My Life grant was announced. The $10,000 grant will be awarded to a fan or band partnering with a non-profit organization related to mental health awareness and/or suicide prevention.
