There’s nothing quite like putting a few tunes on before drifting off to the land of nod, and it turns out, most of us are listening to the same man – Ed Sheeran.

Spotify have revealed that crooner Ed is the most-played artist when it comes to their hugely popular sleep-themed playlists.

John, Ed and Sam are all a hit on sleep playlists

The singer’s track ‘Thinking Out Loud’ is the most-streamed sleep song globally, and it’s been played millions of times on over 2.8million different sleep playlists.

Another six of Ed’s songs appear in the special Top 20 chart, and Sam Smith’s also a popular choice for music fans looking to catch forty winks.

There are a few surprises in Spotify’s findings though, and two tracks from the ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ soundtrack also make an appearance, along with Rihanna, Paul McCartney and Kanye West’s collaboration ‘FourFiveSeconds’.

Spotify’s VP of global communications explains to Billboard: “Sleep’ is one of Spotify’s most popular categories, that people also use for general relaxation and to help themselves unwind.”
