The legendary Chic musician narrated the story for the latest instalment of ‘From Apple Music With Love’, an ongoing Christmas countdown series featuring exclusive releases from a host of big acts.

Today (December 1) Rodgers treated fans to “the perfect nighttime remedy” to get to sleep. Narrated by the iconic producer, Story For Sleep… presents “the comforting sounds of winter” such as breezes and crackling fires in immersive Spatial Audio.
The 39-minute recording is split into six parts, which include ‘Walking Through A Snowy Woods’ and ‘A Cozy Cabin Up Ahead’. You can listen in full below.
Apple Music promises further treats from Coldplay, Mariah Carey and more. Previous “gifts” from the likes of Lorde, Idris Elba and Gwen Stefani are available to stream now – tune in here.

“Having Nile on board is a massive confidence boost,” frontman Dave McCabe told NME, adding that Rodgers was “bringing the best out of us as a band”.
