Falling asleep isn't easy these days, but we know one thing that can help: a bedtime story read in the raspy, soothing, British-accented voice of Harry Styles.
No, you're not dreaming, although you probably will be once you get your hands on this. Styles is bringing his vocal talents to Calm, an app for sleep, meditation, and relaxation that offers sleep stories voiced by stars like Matthew McConaughey and Kelly Rowland, plus other soothing audio recordings. Styles is reading a 30-minute sleep story called "Dream With Me" by Steven Cleverley, which officially dropped today on the app. The singer actually invested in Calm's Series A funding in June 2018 and said in a statement today that sleep and meditation are a major part of his life. "Rest and recovery is as important as doing the work. Finding a balance has been endlessly beneficial to both my physical and mental health. It's changed my life," he said. "I'm so happy to be collaborating with Calm at a time when the world needs all the healing it can get. Treat people with kindness."
Said Calm co-CEO and cofounder Michael Acton Smith, "Harry's voice usually electrifies audiences around the world but his unique Sleep Story will help millions of people drift off to dreamland every night. His mellifluous voice is the perfect tonic to calm a racing mind."
Check out the quick teaser clip below — it's Styles saying "Hello, I'm Harry Styles" in the dreamiest possible voice — and head to the Calm app for the full sleep story. Calm offers a seven-day free trial and costs $70 per year for a premium membership.
