Save It For The Living is intussen al een dikke drie jaar uit, maar nu is er dus ook een akoestische versie. Het is het tweede liedje in de nieuwe 'serie' die de groep uitbrengt. In totaal bestaat dit project uit 3 akoestische liedjes; ook Let Me Be Your Superhero werd eerder al in een nieuw jasje gestoken. De akoestische versies maakt van Save It For The Living een nog emotionelere liedje dan het origineel en zanger Chris Adam Hedman Sörbye zijn stem komt er ongeloofelijk goed uit. Eerder dit jaar kwam Smash Into Pieces hun 5de studio album Arcadia uit.
"When me and Per had decided to finally go through with this project (to rewrite and reproduce some of our most beloved songs) I instantly knew I had to pick Save it for the living. The lyrics of the track tells a real story, a story that has happened and the message is so powerful that it is timeless. So remember this and the true meaning that comes along with the message.. I wish I could see you happy, get on with your life without me, think of me as something beautiful not the bitter end!” Aldus gitarist Benjamin Jennebo.
