In the company of John Coltrane and Miles Davis, Oscar winner Jeff Bridges (
Tron: Legacy) has signed a recording contract with the legendary Blue Note Records.
Bridges, who won the Academy Award for his acting in Crazy Heart as a washed-up country music star also performed the songs featured in the film.
T-Bone Burnett, who produced the soundtrack album and wrote the Oscar winning song "The Weary Kind," will also produce Bridges' album debut on EMI's Blue Note Records, according to The Wrap.
Scheduled for release this summer, the album will feature several of Bridges' compositions, materials by Tom Waits and others, with guest appearances by Rosanne Cash and Sam Phillips.
Bridges' next film Pablo with Andy Garcia and Jon Voight is an animated documentary about a Cuban émigré and The Seventh Son, a fantasy costarring Julianne Moore about exorcising ghosts and witches in the 1700s.
