Mumford & Sons Enlisted For Coen Brothers Movie
Marcus Mumford branches out to film.
Marcus Mumford, lead singer in Mumford & Sons, has been hired as Associate Producer for the soundtrack to the new Coen Brothers movie, Inside Llewyn Davis.

The new film from Joel and Ethan Coen follows a struggling folk musician trying to make it in the thriving Greenwich Village folk scene of New York during the 60s.

The film stars Drive actor Oscar Isaac, Mumford's wife Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman.

T. Bone Burnett will return as Head Producer of the soundtrack as he has four times previously including for O Brother Where Art Thou?

One of the highlights of the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack is Marcus Mumford's cover of the traditional song, Fare Thee Well (Dink's Song) which can be heard in the latest trailer.

Amongst 12 brand new recordings sourced by Burnett and Mumford for the soundtrack will be a track from Dave Van Ronk and a never before released version of Farewell by Bob Dylan.

The 14 track soundtrack is due for release in September 2013 on Nonesuch.
