A new 4 minute edit of this iconic track from UK band Marconi Union will be released tomorrow. Marconi Union are widely considered to be one of the leading ambient acts in the world, continuously topping many lists as the most important contemporary ambient artists around today with 9 studio albums released over the last 15 years, and a new 10th album to be released later this year.
‘Weightless’ was created when the band were asked to write a piece of relaxing music in consultation with a leading sound therapist. When tested, scientists reported that their research indicated that the music slowed the heart rate, reduced blood pressure and decreased levels of cortisol, a steroid hormone that is released in response to stress.
This new 4 minute edit of Weightless has been specifically designed to be incorporated on Sleep, Relaxation, Meditation, Stress Relief, Yoga, Chill, Unwind, Peace, Focus and similar playlists around the world.
