The Lighthouse

Alexander Skarsgård performs a story for us, designed to bring rest and comfort

Listen to Alexander Skarsgård reading “The Lighthouse”, a soothing story about traveling across the oceans, and finding our way back home again.

“As a Swedish native, I was honored to collaborate with Sleep Cycle on this project,” said Skarsgård. “It’s my hope that the soothing journey within ‘The Lighthouse’ brings listeners the peace and relaxation they need for a good night’s sleep.”

With Sleep Cycle’s library of meditations and music, soundscapes and stories, our content helps users gently drift into sleep. We all respond differently, based on our own stories as human beings that shape us through life. Sleep Cycle’s Sleep Aid program is produced with this in mind, on a platform that combines objective findings with an understanding of the emotional experience.

“I always had Mr. Skarsgård in mind when writing ‘The Lighthouse’, says novelist and Sleep Cycle’s Head of Content, Andreas Roman. “I’ve followed his work for years and the very specific and compassionate approach he seems to take on everything he does, became the voice for this story. His performance is a truly powerful and strong one.”
