Cassandra Jenkins has shared a cover of Eartheater’s 2020 song “Faith Consuming Hope.” Jenkins recorded the track for Sounds of Saving (SoS) and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to raise awareness about mental health. Jenkins discusses and performs the single in a new episode of the “Song that Found Me at the Right Time” series. Watch the video below.

“Music has always been a primary way for me to connect my mind and body, before I was ever consciously thinking about how important that connection is for my mental health,” Jenkins said in a press release. She continued:

At the most basic level, music is a conversation between those two aspects of our experience, and when I’m performing, that dialogue includes everyone around me. More and more, when it comes to my mental health, singing is one of the most powerful tools I have to engage my nervous system in a way that harnesses a sense of safety in my body, which in turn allows me to move through my emotions and the world more freely. And the more I can hold that space for myself, the more I’m inviting other people around me to do the same.

Jenkins released her second album An Overview on Phenomenal Nature earlier this year. Read Pitchfork’s Rising interview “Cassandra Jenkins’ Hypnotic Folk Music Turns Everyday Moments Into Monuments.”
