Mumford & Sons singer Marcus Mumford has been in the studio with Justin Timberlake for the soundtrack to a new Coen Brothers movie.

The film "Inside Llewyn Davis" features Marcus' real wife Carey Mulligan alongside Oscar Isaac who plays a musician trying to make a name for himself in 1960s New York. Justin Timberake will also feature onscreen, according to NME.

Timberlake revealed their unusual collaboration during a recent interview:

"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.

"So not only will that be a great movie, but the music to it will be fantastic."

The film does not have an official release date, but is expected to arrive in theaters this year.

    If Justin Timberlake is involved, you know it will sound like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin!!!
    Im excited to hear what this sounds like, both very talented singers and songwriters in my opinion so could be interesting
    Glad UG has some love for JT. Not really into the pop scene much but I remember listening to 'Rock Your Body' a while back and thinking it was ****ing cool
    Agreed dude, JT is a very underrated musician when it comes to a lot of rockers, mainly cause he is associated with pop music. He's a funny dude with a great voice and can write some kickass tunes, what's not to love
    Mixed feelings since I respect JT, but dislike M&S.
    JT = talented entertainer with the minimum artistic integrity necessary to be respectable + Mumford and Sons = not fun in any way = something easily ignored.

    I dislike M&S aswell. It's way to expensive and all the clothes they sell are clearly for old people. I prefer ASDA.
