Jeff Bridges wants to sleep with you. The legendary American actor, musician, painter, and wordsmith is getting into the nocturnal music business with Jeff Bridges Sleeping Tapes. Cuddle up with Jeff’s bemused, reassuring baritone over a wide range of dreamy, meandering instrumentals. Chimes abound.
You can stream the full album for free below, on DreamingWithJeff.com or pay-what-you-wish to download the fifteen-track album. Once that happens all of Bridges’ gravely, rumbling ruminations, from “Seeing With My Eyes Closed” to “See You At The Dreaming Tree,” are yours to keep forever. All proceeds go to No Kid Hungry.
Bridges also partnered with Squarespace to promote the album as a Super Bowl ad:
This is a giant leap forward in Jeff Bridges’ inevitable transformation into “The Dude,” his character in The Big Lebowski who inspired “the slowest-growing religion in the world,” Dudeism.
The lyrics to my personal favorite “Feeling Good” start like this: “As a way to put you in a good mood while you go to bed, I’d like to give you some affirmations…you are a good person. You are worth all the good things that happened in your life. You are intelligent. I like your haircut.”
