Nonesuch Releases Soundtrack To Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis On September 17th 2013

Album Produced by T Bone Burnett, Joel Coen & Ethan Coen
 
Record features performances by Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake, Marcus Mumford, Carey Mulligan, and Punch Brothers
"A great film by two American masters, the Coens have taken a real time and place and freely made it their own, drawing on actual persons and events for inspiration, but binding themselves only to their own bountiful imaginations. The result is playful and evocative. There is also the joy of the music itself, exquisitely arranged by T Bone Burnett and sung live on set by the actors themselves. The soundtrack is stupendous." -Variety
 
Nonesuch Records releases the soundtrack to Inside Llewyn Davis on September 17, 2013. Written and directed by Academy Award¸ winners Joel and Ethan Coen and produced by Scott Rudin and Joel and Ethan Coen, the film stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, and Justin Timberlake. T Bone Burnett, Joel Coen, and Ethan Coen produced the soundtrack, with Marcus Mumford as associate producer. The album includes 12 new recordings made especially for the film and soundtrack plus an existing recording by Dave Van Ronk. Also featured is a never-before-released version of Bob Dylan performing his song "Farewell," which was recorded during the sessions for his album, The Times They Are A-Changin' and is available exclusively on this soundtrack.
 
Inside Llewyn Davis is the Coen brothers' fourth collaboration with the Grammy and Academy Award-winning Burnett; his soundtrack to their film O Brother, Where Art Thou? won five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Producer of the Year. Inside Llewyn Davis recently won the Grand Prix at the Cannes International Film Festival and will be distributed by CBS Films in the U.S., where it receives its limited theatrical premiere on December 6. (Studio Canal is handling international distribution for Inside Llewyn Davis.)
 
Inside Llewyn Davis follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles-some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Davis's misadventures take him from the basket houses of the Village to an empty Chicago club-on an odyssey to audition for music mogul Bud Grossman-and back again. Brimming with music performed by Isaac and Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, Inside Llewyn Davis-in the tradition of O Brother, Where Art Thou?-is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place.
