Jeff Bridges makes album

MOVIES TO MUSIC: Jeff Bridges has signed with Blue Note and is scheduled to release his major-label debut—produced by T Bone Burnett, of course—late this summer, according to a statement released Tuesday by Blue Note. Along with Bridges originals, they chose songs from Tom Waits, Greg Brown and the late Stephen Bruton, a lifelong friend of Burnett’s who played a central role in the creation of the Crazy Heart soundtrack. Guest vocalists include Rosanne Cash, Sam Phillips and Benjie Hughes.  Burnett discovered Burnett’s innate feel for music during the making of the film. “Really, Jeff and [director Scott Cooper] could get writing credit on these songs, because they contributed so much,” Burnett told the L.A. Times’ Randy Lewis in 2009. “Even though I’m not sure they wrote any actual lines, the discussions would become songs. Somebody would say something, Jeff would say, 'That’s a song'—that sort of thing.” (4/20a)
