The Blues Brothers have found a new mission.

Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi's widow, Judy Belushi, have launched Blues Brothers Records.

The new record label is dedicated to the development of blues artists. The label's music will be distributed by Capitol Music Group's Blue Note Records.

Aykroyd and John Belushi originally performed as the sunglass-clad siblings on "Saturday Night Live" and later in the 1980 film "The Blues Brothers."

Aykroyd said in a statement Monday that he's excited for the label to find the next generation of blues performers.

Aykroyd previously co-founded the House of Blues, which will be partnering with the record label for promotional events at House of Blues venues.
