The Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack will be getting an early release that plays up the film's old-school origins. It will be available on vinyl at indie record stores today, one week ahead of the CD and digital versions' official November 11th street date. But more than coming out on vinyl, its real tie-in to the movie is its "throwback Sixties" price of $5.98.

The soundtrack features folk music by Dave Van Ronk, the Greenwich Village folk artist whose story served as the basis for the movie, as well as songs performed by Bob Dylan, Marcus Mumford, and some of the stars of the movie: actor Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan. The album was produced by T Bone Burnett and the Coen Brothers. It's the producers' fourth collaboration, one of which, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, won five Grammys. To celebrate Inside Llewyn Davis, the producers held a concert in September that featured Patti Smith, Elvis Costello, Joan Baez, Jack White, Conor Oberst and more.

The film follows around Llewyn Davis, a folk musician working his way around New York City's Greenwich Village in the 1960s, before the big folk explosion. In addition to the actors above, it also features John Goodman, F. Murray Abraham and two actors from Girls, Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky. It's set to hit theaters on December 6th.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
