Executive produced by Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie, the acclaimed 2023 Tribeca Festival selection and refugee sports documentary is now streaming exclusively on Peacock.
“But tonight/I don’t need to close my eyes/I don’t need to fall asleep/I don’t need to sleep to dream no I don’t,” Legend sings on the record. “Bent but not broken/Down but not hopeless/Eyes are wide open I know it/Don’t need to sleep to dream.”
Legend notably co-wrote “Don’t Need To Sleep” with Justin Tranter and Oak Felder, who also produced the song. On the track, soft strings unspool underneath striking and soulful verses punctuated by piano. It culminates on the climactic chorus as he reminds, “Don’t need to sleep to dream.”
“Don’t Need to Sleep” marks the first release from Legend since the release of his 2022 album,” Legend.” Earlier this year, he appeared on collaborative releases and features with Niall Horan and Rufus Wainwright.
