The Coen Brothers’ new film, Inside Llewyn Davis, tells the story of a struggling young folk singer engulfed in the 1960′s folk scene in New York City, so it makes perfect sense that a movie about a musician would include a soundtrack album.
Today, details were divulged for the film’s accompanying soundtrack, produced by T Bone Burnett, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. The 14-song compilation is being released on Nonesuch records and appropriately features famous folk singers Von Ronk and Robert Allen Zimmerman, AKA Bob Dylan.
The soundtrack also includes tunes performed by the film’s big stars, specifically Justin Timberlake, Oscar Issac and Carey Mulligan. Mulligans husband, Mumford and Sons’ frontman Marcus Mumford is also appearing on the album and collaborating with Justin Timberlake on a cover of ‘The Auld Triangle’.
The Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack is due to drop on 17 September, just before the film premieres on 6 December. Check out the tracklist below.
