Discussing her new song with “Hollywood Sentinel” today, Carissa Summer Rose was asked what the new remix of “Hopeless” means to her. She states, “I wrote the song back in 2019, when I was eighteen. It was one of the highlights of my coming-of-age debut album called “It Started in the City of Roses,” and encapsulated my struggles with depression and feelings of hopelessness about life in general at that time that many kids go through. When I first wrote the song, it was about making others feel less alone in their struggles, but years after releasing it, I view it a little differently. That time in my life is a part of my life story, and a reminder of how far I’ve come with my emotional journey.” Carissa adds, “Working on the new version of the song was a challenge. Singing it always stirs up old emotions and brings me back to the state of mind that I was in when I wrote it. The thing that got me out of that headspace was reminding myself of the progress I have made since then, and how much things have really changed.”
