Imagine: Harry Styles reading you a bedtime story, and you drifting softly to sleep to dulcet tones of his voice. But this time it’s real, not a short and sweet Y/N fanfic on Tumblr and Wattpad.
Calm, the sleep and meditation app, has announced that Harry Styles is narrating a 30(!) minute-long bedtime story called “Dream With Me” on the app. It’s one of their Sleep Stories, which are soothing stories that act as sleep aids and are occasionally voiced by celebrities, Matthew McConaughey and Stephen Fry being some previous guests.
“Sleep and meditation are a huge part of my routine, whether I’m at home, in the studio, or out on the road,” Billboard quotes the singer. “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. 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.”
If you desperately need the sleeping aid (or just really, really want to hear Styles’ voice), you’re in luck: It’s already on the app.
The app previously released a teaser hinting at their collaboration on Twitter on Jul. 7, with the teaser ending with an (I have to say, suspiciously ASMR-sounding) soundbite of Styles introducing himself.
If your internal monologue is going through variations of “What a gift, what a time to be alive, finally some good news in the middle of this trashfire hellscape”—hard same. If there’s anyone who can fight through my pandemic insomnia and sucker punch my sleep paralysis demons away, it’s my boy Harry.
