‘Inside Llewyn Davis’: Hear Justin Timberlake and Carrie Mulligan’s Lovely Duet (Audio)

NPR is streaming the “Inside Llewyn Davis” soundtrack, and it’s delighful.

Thirteen years after “O Brother, Where Are Thou?” Joel and Ethan Coen again team with producer T. Bone Burnett to celebrate American roots music. Last time it was Depression-era gospel, blues and bluegrass. This time they turn to the 1960s Greenwich Village folk scene that spawned Bob Dylan.

The film focuses on the fictional Davis, a struggling musician played by Oscar Isaacs. Among those playing his fellow musicians are Justin Timberlake, Cary Mulligan and Stark Sands, who lend their voices to the melancholy “Five Hundred Miles.” (It’s the folk song by Hedy West, not the song by the Proclaimers.)

You can listen to the song — and all the others on the soundtrack — on NPR’s website. The film premieres Dec. 6.
