The soundtrack to Minneapolis natives Joel and Ethan Coen's upcoming folk music tale "Inside Llewyn Davis" includes a song by Minnesota music icon Bob Dylan, Rolling Stone reports.

The soundtrack album includes 14 tracks, including songs performed by the stars of the movie including Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan and Oscar Issac, who plays the title character. Also on the album are tracks from the Punch Brothers and Mulligan's husband, Marcus Mumford.

See the track listings here.

The film, opening in limited release Dec. 6 and wider Dec. 20, chronicles the path of Llewyn Davis, a struggling folk singer who tries to navigate his way through the burgeoning folk music scene in New York's City's Greenwich Village in the early 1960s.

The film, which recently won the coveted Grand Prix prize at the Cannes Film Festival in May, also stars John Goodman, F. Murray Abraham and Roseau native Garret Hedlund.

The Coens, who co-wrote some of the songs on the album, are collaborating on the album with T Bone Burnett -- the acclaimed producer who worked the brothers on three previous films including the soundtrack to "O' Brother, Where Art Thou?"

The "O Brother" soundtrack went on to win five Grammy awards.

Dylan's song on the soundtrack, "Farewell," also appears in the film's trailer below. Disclaimer: Trailer includes some swearing and sexual suggestions.
