Jeff Bridges Releases Album Designed To Help You Sleep

The Coen brothers' adaptation of True Grit, chock-full of graphic violence, might not be your ideal movie to fall asleep to. But the voice of the movie's star, Jeff Bridges, is a whole other story. It's soothing in its grittiness.

The Academy Award-winning actor is releasing an album called "Jeff Bridges Sleeping Tapes" designed to lull listeners to sleep. The album features Bridges' silky voice humming and narrating over sounds and field recordings, as well as guided meditations. He collaborated with "True Detective" composer Keefus Ciancia and Grammy Award-winning sound mastering engineer Doug Sax.

"While working on the 'Sleeping Tapes' album we put in some long hours," Bridges told the Wall Street Journal. "Listening back to our day's works, I'd often drift off. I'd wake up and smile saying, 'This stuff works.'" If he can fall asleep to the sound of his own voice, imagine what his voice could do for you.

It's available as a pay-what-you-want download at The best part? All of its proceeds will go to No Kid Hungry, a nonprofit dedicated to ending child hunger in the U.S., for which Bridges has been a spokesperson since 2010.

The 30-second teaser for the album will air during the Super Bowl, but you can check it out below before then.
