Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart

Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart

Following on from the incredible success of his Oscar winning performance in last year’s “Crazy Heart” where he played a washed up musician, Jeff Bridges has continued with his song writing since then and has announced he will be releasing his self-titled major-label debut album on August 16.

Commenting on his move toward music, Bridges commented, “I’ve gotten into my music a lot and I think that’s a direct result of ‘Crazy Heart’.”

The record is being produced by T Bone Burnett, Bridges’ collaborator in “Crazy Heart” and features songwriters like Burnett, Stephen Bruton, John Goodwin, Greg Brown and Thomas Cobb.

Bridges wrote or co-wrote four out of the 11 songs on the album. Roseanne Cash, Ryan Bingham, Sam Phillips and Benji Hughes appear as guest vocalists.
