Bedtime Music

The Oscar-winning American actor Jeff Bridges recorded Sleeping Tapes in 2015, currently available for download on the Squarespace platform. This is a compilation of strange songs—poetic and unusual—to help one fall asleep...

The world is filled with too many restless people in need of rest – that’s why I filled my sleeping tapes with intriguing sounds, noises and other things to help you get a good night’s rest.
— Jeff Bridges

Squarespace partnered with Academy Award® winner, musician and philanthropist Jeff Bridges, on a project which was launched during Super Bowl XLIX 2015. “We’re thrilled to get the opportunity to work with such an incredible personality on our latest campaign, which extends far beyond the Super Bowl spot. We wanted to create a campaign to illustrate that any idea, no matter how wild or weird, can be presented beautifully and meaningfully through Squarespace. Instead of being built around an ad, our campaign is built around a real project on our platform.” — Anthony Casalena, Squarespace Founder and CEO

This project may inspire you! 

Jeff Bridges, actor, producer and country musician (Be Here Soon, 2000 and Jeff Bridges, 2011) has been involved for quite some time in helping children. The father of three daughters and co-founder of the End Hunger Network aimed at encouraging, stimulating and supporting action to end childhood hunger. He supported President Obama's initiative to End Childhood Hunger by 2015. In November 2010, Bridges became a spokesman for the No Kid Hungry campaign. This project with Squarespace was an excellent boost for the cause.

— The collaboration, "Jeff Bridges Sleeping Tapes", brought to life on DreamingWithJeff.com, features an album of relaxing sounds, guided meditations, and stories designed to lull you to sleep. Created and recorded by Jeff Bridges, the sleeping tracks are free to stream online as a 'pay what you like' release on Jeff's Squarespace site (DreamingWithJeff.com).

Limited-run cassette tapes and vinyls were available for sale on the website following the ad's debut. 100% of the retail price (excluding shipping and service fees) from each album sold goes directly to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign, which is dedicated to ensuring kids have access to the healthy food they need, every day. 

You can download the album by clicking on the image below.

Making DreamingWithJeff.com has been a great experience. I got the chance to work with friends old and new to make something pretty special. I was able to take the seed of an idea, make it my own, and then see it come to life in such a beautiful way... I love the work we’ve done, and I’m proud that it will benefit the No Kid Hungry campaign, a cause I believe in so deeply.
