In support of the surprise release, “The Dude” himself appeared on last night’s Conan, where he led the late-night TV host and crowd in a round of meditative “omming.” Although the lengthy exercise proved more funny than relaxing, it seemed like the perfect bit of promo for Sleeping Tapes (which is more than I cay for its confusing Super Bowl ad). What’s more, Bridges stuck around afterwards to jam out with Conan and special guest Slash (!) on “Somebody Else”, a highlight from the actor’s excellent 2009 film Crazy Heart.
Maybe for a new project those three can put out a country rock record to help me get out of bed in the morning? I might be down with that. Watch the two awesome clips below.
