Jeff Bridges is working on a new album with his Crazy Heart collaborator T Bone Burnett.

The Oscar-winning actor has signed with EMI's Blue Note Records on an album that will include original material and the work of other songwriters.

Jeff has said he was inspired by his work with Burnett on Crazy Heart, which earned Jeff an Oscar for best actor and Burnett a best original song trophy.

Jeff has been a musician much of his life and has previously released recordings on his own. He first met Burnett on the set of Heaven's Gate 30 years ago when they were introduced by Kris Kristofferson.

Guests on the album will include Rosanne Cash and Sam Phillips.

No release date has been set.
