Jeff Bridges Debuts Sleepytime Sounds
If you have secretly always been serenaded (and possibly turned on by) the sound of Jeff Bridges‘ voice, don’t worry…you’re not the only one. There’s something about that gravelly rasp, the laid back, relaxing quality of his tone, and even an indication of old wisdom in the dude’s croaky whisper that just gets us going. Well now, the skies have opened and the forces of creative genius and innovative machinery have come together to give us this gem: a whole album of Jeff Bridges’ voice to help us sleep at night.
Yep, you heard right. All of your latent Jeff Bridges dreams are about to come true. Squarespace and Bridges have teamed up for this mutual marketing campaign – Squarespace will provide the web development platform for Mr. Bridges “sleeping tapes,” which are fully accessible through his site DreamingwithJeff.com. And in turn, Bridges will be the face of Squarespace’s “wildest ideas come to life in a beautiful way” project that will continue to kick off during Superbowl XLIX.
Bridges quotes in the album’s promo video that "The world is filled with restless people…that’s why I made my sleeping tapes album, it’s filled with relaxing sounds and other stuff to help em’ get some rest…" "Sleeping Tapes" combines an atmospheric blend ambient sounds, nature’s noises, and of course, clips of Jeff Bridges’ own narration. Squarespace and Bridges have opened the album up to the public for a pay-what-you want digital download, and all proceeds will go to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. Thank goodness for successful marketing with a touch of charity, huh? Now Jeff Bridges musky man-voice can lull us into slumber every night while securing us about our humanitarian contributions to society!
