Jeff Bridges - Jeff Bridges All Set To Release Second Album
Jeff Bridges is set to release his second album tomorrow (16.08.11) and admits he is excited about people hearing it because music has been such a big part of his life.
Jeff Bridges is excited about releasing his second album and insists he won't be "put in a box" as an artist.
The 61-year-old Hollywood star's self-titled LP - his first major label release - is available from tomorrow (16.08.11) and he isn't worried about critics who scoff at the prospect of an actor making music.
Jeff told the Los Angeles Times newspaper: "People like to put things in a box - and they do that with their own lives too, they limit things - but it's all art to me. To me, all art is truth. People try to define things and make it easier for their mind to digest things, I guess. But music has been part of my life since I was a kid. Music meant more to me when I was young, but I went into acting because of family and because it was the path of least resistance."
The actor was signed to Blue Note Records/EMI records following his portrayal of down-and-out country singer Otis 'Bad' Blake in 2009 movie 'Crazy Heart', a performance which earned him the Best Actor Oscar.
His first LP 'Be Here Soon' came out in February 2000.
