Halfway into 2020 -- an unrelenting hellscape that just keeps getting worse -- we are all extremely tired. Many of us are kept awake at night not knowing what the next day will bring. Is it a bubonic plague? The decimation of America’s already flailing healthcare system under Trump? The deletion of TikTok? We are crying out for a crumb of serotonin here, guys!

Thankfully, Harry Styles has returned from his months-long dip into the shadows with a new project. And nope, it’s not the video for “Sunflower, Vol 6” -- he’s here to read us all a bedtime story! The king of big trousers and nice blouses has just released a 30 minute so-called 'Sleep Story' titled “Dream With Me” on the mental wellbeing app Calm. The collaboration was first teased earlier this week with this extremely ASMR clip of Harry’s dulcet tones, designed to send us off into a lovely little stupor for a bit.

Harry has been a long-time supporter of Calm, investing in the app back in 2018, so it was natural that eventually he’d lend his voice to one of their stories. “Sleep and meditation are a huge part of my routine, whether I’m at home, in the studio, or out on the road,” he said in a statement. “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 like the idea of drifting off into a light afternoon doze right now, you can hear Harry’s version of “Dream With Me” over on the Calm app by clicking here. Sleep tight!
