This is the most relaxing song in the world

Sometimes we have trouble sleeping. That’s the way it is. Fortunately, Manchester band Marconi Union have the answer: they composed the most relaxing song in the world.

The British trio have 11 albums under their belts. Haven’t heard of them? Didn’t think so (we hadn’t before, either). They are semi-famous in certain obscure scenes, and are often linked with master composer Brian Eno.

Weightless, the track in question, was composed in 2011 in collaboration with the British Academy of Sound Therapy. So every note in there is actually there for a reason. The track, according to studies, induced a 65% reduction of anxiety in subjects, and brought their pulses to 35% of their usual resting rates.

So, if you need a good night’s sleep, we got your back (also, there’s a 10 hour version, if you’re interested).

Listen to Marconi Union below.
