3:36 (Music to Sleep To) is an experimental ambient music album by Poppy, released on October 17th, 2016. The album was specifically designed to help facilitate a full night of sleep and encourage a healthy dream state.
Background and Conception
3:36 (Music to Sleep To) was initially released exclusively on Poppy's Bandcamp. The album does not contain any of Poppy's vocals, instead being a set of instrumentals composed and produced by Poppy and Titanic Sinclair. Every song on the album has been used as background music in at least one Poppy video. The album is $10.00 USD.
Poppy later mentioned the album and promoted it in her video titled "Ambient Music". In this video, she claims that her true passion is creating ambient music, as well as that a portion of the proceeds made by the album will go directly to people who suffer from sleep apnea.
On September 18th, 2020, the album was re-released to music streaming services under I'm Poppy Records. However, this re-release features a completely renumbered tracklist, with only "Obnoxious Blocks" and "Phonic" retaining their original positions on the tracklist. It also features shorter versions of "Air People", "Me Time Me" and "Telepathy".

- The album's name, 3:36, is a reference to Poppy's video of the same name.
- At the 1:29 mark in the music video for "Money", Poppy can be seen wearing the same outfit she wears on the cover of this album.
- When producing the album, the Poppy team sought the help of polysomnographists at the Washington University School of Medicine and later gave them a special thanks for their insights.
- Poppy would follow a similar naming convention for her albums I C U (Music to Read To) and Music to Scream To, which serve as the soundtracks to her graphic novels Genesis 1 and Poppy's Inferno, respectively.
- The cover art for the 2020 re-release is slightly more zoomed-out, and the background is a different shade of white.
