Oscar winning actor Jeff Bridges will release his self-titled major-label debut album on August 16, record company Blue Note said on Monday.

The album is being produced by Bridges Crazy Heart collaborator T Bone Burnett and features material by several songwriters as well as Bridges' own compositions.

"I've gotten into my music a lot and I think that's a direct result of Crazy Heart," Bridges, 61, said last autumn.

Bridges himself wrote or co-wrote four of the 11 songs on the album.

Bridges and Burnett first met in 1980 and worked together on the 1998 film The Big Lebowski. Burnett co-wrote several of songs for Crazy Heart including The Weary Kind, which won the Oscar last year for best original song.
