LOS ANGELES – Jeff Bridges And The Abiders will release their new album Live on September 30.
The 14-track album will include live recordings of songs from the Jeff Bridges And The Abiders debut album Be Here Soon and self-titled follow up on Blue Note Records, as well as original music from the film Crazy Heart and some of Bridges’ favorite chosen covers of The Byrds, Tom Waits and Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Live was recorded during concert performances at Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas earlier this summer.
“We’ve been touring this summer and this is what we came up with,” said Bridges. “The tunes have many sources – John Goodwin wrote a bunch, T Bone Burnett, Stephen Bruton, and Gary Nicholson wrote a few. We do a beautiful Tom Waits tune, a little Creedence, some Byrds, Townes Van Zandt; Greg Brown, I wrote a tune with T Bone that’s on there. The band sounds great. I’m digging it.”
Jeff Bridges And The Abiders Live is now available for pre-order online. Pre-order the album now at iTunes and instantly receive the new, unreleased track “Exception to the Rule.”
