Above & Beyond Narrates Bedtime Tales for World Sleep Day

In an enchanting blend of storytelling and music, Above & Beyond's Tony McGuinness captivated listeners on World Sleep Day with a special narration of the classic fairytale "Jack and the Beanstalk" on Pandora's Sleep Radio. The event marked a unique collaboration between the celebrated electronic music group and the popular streaming service Pandora, offering an exclusive sleep experience designed to soothe listeners into slumber.

On March 15, Above & Beyond took over Pandora's Sleep Radio to celebrate World Sleep Day, featuring a bedtime story narrated by Tony McGuinness. Accompanying the storytelling were carefully curated playlists showcasing a tranquil selection from the Anjunadeep, Reflections, and Anjunabeats labels and tracks from Above & Beyond's Flow State album. This initiative not only highlighted the group's musical versatility but also their commitment to promoting relaxation and well-being through their ambient sounds.

Angus Maxwell, Director of Streaming and Promotions at Involved Productions, expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration: "We are delighted to have this opportunity with Pandora, not only to take 'Flow State' into its next chapter but also to showcase our wider repertoire of ambient music and incredibly talented artists. This has been a huge focus for us in the last two years, and 2024's 'World Sleep Day Partnership' feels like the perfect opportunity to celebrate and showcase that… while hopefully providing a suitable soundtrack & story to a good night's sleep."
