The Ultimate Soundtrack to Get the Best Sleep Ever

Listen to British composer Max Richter's 8-hour lullaby TONIGHT.

If you find the notion of counting sheep to fall asleep infuriating, but still need something to nestle you into a deep slumber, you’ll be thrilled to hear a British composer has written a lullaby that will help you do just that.

Max Richter is the man behind the music. Richter spent about two years writing and recording the eight-hour piece of music (though, hopefully you’ll only ever really hear the beginning and end) that’s designed to put you to sleep.
