Marcus Mumford, of the band Mumford & Sons, has said that providing a film song is "quite fun", after it was revealed the band have worked on a track for an upcoming animation's soundtrack.

The guitar band's latest musical offering ties in with a film from Pixar, the filmmakers behind such well-known kids' cinema hits as Toy Story, WALL .E and Monsters, Inc. It will grace the soundtrack of their forthcoming movie, Brave.

"It's quite fun doing a song for a movie rather than for an album," said Mumford.

"We liked the idea of having an orchestra in the background and having a girl like Birdy sing - it's been quite liberating."

Birdy is the female vocalist taking-on crooning duties for the track.

Involving a curly-red-haired heroine, the digital animation Brave employs the likes of Robbie Coltrane, Emma Thompson and Julie Walters among its cast.

Mumford & Sons' previous songs include The Cave and Little Lion Man, while their latest offering bears the title Learn Me Right.
