Mumford & Sons’ Frontman Covers Bob Dylan’s Cover Of ‘Fare Thee Well’
The first trailer for Inside Llewyn Davis, the forthcoming Coen Brothers film, featured a Bob Dylan cover of the old folk song “Fare Thee Well (Dink’s Song).” But a new, recently released version features the same track as done by Mumford & Sons’ frontman Marcus Mumford and the film’s star, Oscar Isaac.
In the film Isaac plays a talented character who performs folk music in the 1960s but can’t quite catch a star-making break. The trailer also gives a peak at a bearded Justin Timberlake, who plays a character named Jim Berkey.
Timberlake will appear alongside Mumford on the film’s soundtrack, along with Dylan, Dave Van Ronk, the Punch Brothers, and Isaac’s costar (and Mumford’s girlfriend) Carey Mulligan. The soundtrack is being executive produced by T Bone Burnett, who helmed the multiplatinum, GRAMMY-winning soundtrack for the Coen Brothers’ film O Brother, Where Art Thou?
