"Nighttime Symphony" revolves around a little boy whose father is getting him ready for bed. The sounds of a wild storm echo around him, lulling him to sleep.

"As a person who makes books for young people, it's rare that you get an opportunity to do a collaboration with a music icon like Timbaland. I can't wait for our album' to drop this summer," Myers added.
