The music world may have been elated to get Justin Timberlake back in the game again after many years of him pursuing his acting career, but Hollywood needn’t mourn their loss just yet as Justin has now found a way to combine both of his loves as he is currently working on a song for a movie soundtrack along with recent Grammy winners Mumford & Sons.

The film Inside Llewyn Davis is about a singer/songwriter from the 60’s, so it only makes sense to involve award winning musicians to write for the films soundtrack, as JT blends his sound of soulful Pop/R&B with Mumford & Sons Folk sound for results that we’re already dying to hear just at the thought of it.

Speaking on the collaboration, Justin says, “Marcus and myself we all kind of worked on the music together and I don’t know any other world where we would get the opportunity to collaborate like that but it was so much fun. Not only will that be a great movie, but the music to it will be fantastic.”

As the hook up of the two artists may seem completely out of the blue, it might make more sense when you know that Jessica Biel and Carey Mulligan – wives of Timberlake and Marcus Mumford – are both starring in the movie making the film and sountrack somewhat of a family affair.

No date has been announced yet for the release of Inside Llewyn Davis, but we’ll be sure to wait on that collaboration.
