Bob Dylan confirmed for Coen Brothers film soundtrack

Bob Dylan is among the artists appearing on the soundtrack for Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film from the Coen Brothers.

The film, which is set in Greenwich Village in the early 1960s and stars Oscar Isaac as an upcoming folk singer, contains contemporaneous music by Dylan and Dave Van Ronk alongside material performed by members of the cast, including Isaac and Justin Timberlake, and Marcus Mumford.

As with the Coens other great period movie, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, the soundtrack has been overseen by T Bone Burnett.

The Dylan track which appears on the soundtrack is a rare cut, “Farewell”, which was originally recorded for The Times They Are a-Changin’ sessions.
