    Nonesuch to Release Live Recording from One-Night-Only Town Hall Concert Celebrating Music of "Inside Llewyn Davis"

    Concert, SHOWTIME® documentary, and live album produced by Inside Llewyn Davis writer / director / producers Joel and Ethan Coen and soundtrack producer T Bone Burnett

    Album features live performances by the film’s star, Oscar Isaac, as well as The Avett Brothers, Joan Baez, Rhiannon Giddens, Colin Meloy, The Milk Carton Kids, Marcus Mumford, Punch Brothers, Dave Rawlings Machine, Patti Smith, Gillian Welch, Willie Watson, Jack White

    "[Artists] delivered sharpened songs on acoustic instruments, singing in pitch perfect tone that left an oft-awestruck audience silently stunned—then vocally thrilled." —Los Angeles Times

    "[The concert] illustrated how contemporary musicians have advanced the genre, and stoked the fire for the forthcoming Coen Brothers’ film Inside Llewyn Davis. It did so beautifully with a sense of joy conveyed with ease by three generations of considerable talent." —Wall Street Journal

    "Some of the most transcendent folk music performances we’ve seen in ages … It was a tribute to the folk music pioneers of yesteryear, a celebration of folk artists killing it today and a preview of the innovators who are about to reinvent the genre for ensuing generations." —VH1

    Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating the Music of "Inside Llewyn Davis," a one-night-only concert, was held at New York City’s Town Hall on September 29, 2013, to celebrate the music of the Golden Globe–nominated film Inside Llewyn Davis. The evening was filmed for a documentary that will be broadcast by SHOWTIME beginning this Friday, December 13, at 10 PM, and Nonesuch Records will release a live album from the concert in late winter/early spring fall 2014 (details to follow soon). The concert, documentary, and live album were produced by Inside Llewyn Davis writer/director/producers Joel and Ethan Coen and soundtrack producer T Bone Burnett. Huffington Post called the concert “one of those only-in-New-York events,” while Rolling Stone said it was “a bustling salute to the sounds and the idea of Sixties folk music,” and continued, “For all the formality of the night, which was exceedingly well-paced and organized, the concert recalled a time when one or two people, bearing one or two unplugged instruments, could be as enthralling as the greatest rock or EDM track.”

    Inside Llewyn Davis stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, and Justin Timberlake. The film follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles—some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the baskethouses of the Village to an empty Chicago club—on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul—and back again. Brimming with music performed by Isaac and Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan (as Llewyn’s married Village friends), as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, Inside Llewyn Davis—in the tradition of O Brother, Where Art Thou?—is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place.

    The film has received tremendous critical praise and was nominated today for three Golden Globe Awards: Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy (Oscar Isaac); Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy; and Best Original Song, Motion Picture (“Please Mr. Kennedy”). It has also won several awards—including the Grand Prix at the Cannes International Film Festival; Best Feature at the Gotham Independent Film Awards; and Best Original Screenplay and a Top Movie of 2013 from the National Board of Review. Inside Llewyn Davis was named to the American Film Institute’s AFI Awards 2013 for outstanding achievement in film and television, while its star, Oscar Isaac, was named an annual Virtuosos Award winner by the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The Los Angeles Film Critics Association awarded Inside Llewyn Davis with Best Cinematography and Best Use of Score, the New York Online Film Critics gave the film its Best Use of Music prize, and it also won Best Soundtrack Album at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards.

    Nonesuch released the soundtrack to Inside Llewyn Davis on November 11, 2013. Produced by T Bone Burnett, Joel Coen, and Ethan Coen, with Marcus Mumford as its associate producer, the album features 12 new recordings created especially for the film and soundtrack. Also included is a never-before-released recording of Bob Dylan performing his song “Farewell,” which was originally recorded during the sessions for his album The Times They Are A-Changin', and is available exclusively on this soundtrack. To pick up a copy of the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout. Both are now 35% off the standard retail price (about 20% off the everyday low prices listed on the site) as part of the current Nonesuch Store anniversary sale.
