Justin Timberlake has revealed he has worked on a new track with Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford,  for the soundtrack to Inside Llewyn Davis, the new Coen Brothers movie.

The new film stars Timberlake and Mumford's wife Carey Mulligan which is how the artists came to work together. The film will tell a story of a singer-songwriter trying to break New York's folk music scene in the 1960s.

Timberlake told Capital FM: "OK I can tell you this. There's a Coen brothers film coming out soon that I was lucky enough to work with Oscar Isaac and Carey Mulligan.

"And coincidentally I did work with Marcus Mumford on the soundtrack, so I became very good friends with them."

After becoming such good friends, the 'Suit & Tie' singer refused to write-off working with Mumford in the future.

Timberlake added: "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.

"So not only will that be a great movie, but the music to it will be fantastic."

Although Timberlake may have a friend in Marcus Mumford, it would appear that Kanye West isn't his biggest fan as the rapper recently took a swipe at JT's comeback track 'Suit & Tie', telling the crowd at a London gig: "I got love for hov, but I ain't f**king with that 'Suit & Tie'."
