In an interview with the UK’s Capital FM Breakfast, Justin Timberlake announced that he worked with Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford on music for the upcoming Coen Bros. film “Inside Llewyn Davis.”

“There's a Coen brothers film coming out soon that I was lucky enough to work with Oscar Isaac and Carey Mulligan,” the singer said. “And coincidentally I did work with Marcus Mumford on the soundtrack, so I became very good friends with them.”

Timberlake also stars in the film with Mumford’s wife Mulligan, Isaac, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund and “Girls" stars Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky. (Check out the film’s trailer here.)

"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," the “Suit & Tie” hitmaker added. "So not only will that be a great movie, but the music to it will be fantastic.”

Whenever the former 'N Sync member collaborates with another artist, magic happens.

5. Ciara’s "Love Sex Magic"

During a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the sexy music video for “Love Sex Magic,” Timberlake reflected on working with Ciara, saying, “I wanted to create a song for a female that was along the same lines of the same way a male could have swagger on a record. Working with Ciara, she just fit the song so perfectly.”
