JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE HAS donned an Irish accent to record a version of the Irish folk song The Auld Triangle for his new film.

Timberlake stars alongside Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and John Goodman in the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis.

The film focuses on a folk singer-songwriter who’s trying to make it in the music scene in the 1960s

The soundtrack also features Marcus Mumford (lead singer of Mumford and Sons and Carey Mulligan’s husband) and bluegrass band Punch Brothers.

Three members of Punch Brothers, along with Mumford and Timberlake sing together for the film’s version of The Auld Triangle.
