Jeff Bridges a.k.a. “The Dude” Releases Ambient Sleep Tape to End Child Hunger


“I got off on this thing, man!” actor Jeff Bridges exclaimed to late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. That “thing” is his new musical release, “Jeff Bridges Sleeping Tapes,” which was announced on Superbowl Sunday with a hilarious 30-second commercial showing the actor putting a couple to sleep with his yogi chants.

Bridges collaborated with Squarespace, a website publishing platform, to create, where fans and insomniacs can buy the sleep tapes on cassette (yes, cassette) or limited-edition vinyl, or pay what they wish to download the full album.

Perhaps best known for his laid-back character “The Dude” in The Big Lebowski, Bridges has perfected the ultimate soothing voice, probably second only to Morgan Freeman, and we can’t imagine a better way to be rocked to sleep. A long-time anti-hunger advocate, Bridges will donate all proceeds to the nonprofit Share our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.

In addition to the cassettes and regular old records, special-edition vinyl copies will be auctioned off.
