Editors' Notes There’s something special about ambient music that can be relaxing and compelling at the same time. A soundtrack for escaping, unwinding, or drifting away to sleep, these largely contemporary tracks (with a few classics mixed in) will soften your senses while still offering dedicated ambient listeners new corners to explore. Our editors regularly refresh this playlist. If you like a track, add it to your library.
