Marcus Mumford, Justin Timberlake and Bob Dylan appear on the soundtrack for new Coen Brothers film Inside Llweyn Davis.
The soundtrack features songs by Dylan, alongside a mix of traditional and original folk songs performed by the film’s stars Justin Timberlake, Oscar Issac and Carey Mulligan, whose husband Mumford and Sons‘ frontman Marcus Mumford also sings on a number of tracks. The Punch Brothers also feature.
The 14-track album has been produced by T Bone Burnett, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. It’s the filmmakers fourth collaboration with Burnett, who won five Grammys for the soundtrack to their 2000 movie O Brother, Where Are Thou?.
Speaking earlier this year about collaborating with Marcus Mumford on the soundtrack, Justin Timberlake told Capital FM: “…I did work with Marcus Mumford on the soundtrack… Marcus and myself, we all kind of worked on the music together and I don’t know any other world where we would have the opportunity to collaborate like that but it was so much fun.”
The film, which stars Timberlake, Carey Mulligan and Oscar Issac, focuses on a fictional folk musician trying to make it in 1960s New York. Also appearing in the film are John Goodman, F. Murray Abraham, Adam Driver and Garrett Hedlund. The film is due out in the US on December 6, but no UK date has been announced. Scroll down to watch a trailer for the movie.
